Hello all, I would like to announce the beginning of a project to make a concerted effort to mainline patches and features from Android into the mainline Linux kernel.
At the recent kernel summit in Prague, there was a discussion about re-evaluating some of the Android-specific features that are found in Google's android kernel, and looking at whether and how to incorporate them into the mainline (kernel.org) kernel. Various parties, including individual developers, the CE workgroup in the Linux Foundation, and a group at Linaro have been working on different aspects of this. A wiki page and mailing list have been created to help coordinate our efforts and avoid duplication and confusion. The wiki page for this effort (still under construction) is at: http://elinux.org/Android_Mainlining_Project There's a mailing list if you wish to follow discussions about this project. It's available at: https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/ce-android-mainline If you are interested in this work, please join the mailing list or send me an e-mail. Some interesting things are already happening. I'll send a status message to the ce-android-mainline list in a day or two to let interested parties know what's currently going on.
