In the time frame I mentioned previously, my job title was "Unix Kernel Engineer". Some people might say that was when the pure Bell Labs and Berkeley Unix kernels were thriving. But I was not
working for either Bell or Berkeley. I was not
one of the people who originally created the kernels. Instead I was working for one of the companies that paid big bucks to license the kernel source code to port it to specific hardware. Despite my title, I didn't know how to contact anyone at Bell or Berkeley for assistance working with their kernels.
The OP might have simply meant that they downloaded Linux kernel source code and have worked with it to some extent.
I've done Software Systems and Applications Development on a very wide of platforms, from old IBM mainframes to much more recent microprocessors, and had to deal with all the associated documentation. I greatly appreciate Linux and use it probably about 99.99...% of the time when using a computer. But I feel there's plenty of Linux documentation which could benefit from a fair amount of improvement. I wouldn't be surprised that someone didn't know something.
