Didn't know that others get developed in installments.
I'd like to learn more. After reading an article about a man that 'patches the kernel' for Red Hat I was not only surprized that patching the kernel was a just a hobby to him but was inspired to learn more.
It sounds like being a Linux Developer is not only a demanding position but a rewarding one as well.
Oh, and not to mention the credentials that are required/on demand.
Where can I learn more about the involvement, developement and patches made to the kernel?
