LXer: Linux: New v2.4 Kernel Maintainer

Published at LXer:

Recently releasing the 2.4.33-rc3 kernel, Marcelo Tosatti [interview] also announced a new 2.4 Linux kernel maintainer, "Willy Tarreau has stepped up to maintain the mainline v2.4 tree, and will do so starting from v2.4.34. He has devoted great effort to help maintenance for the past few years. His -hotfix tree is quite popular amongst v2.4 users, for instance. I feel very confident in his competence for the job, knowing his good common sense and great technical/communication skills." Willy began maintaining his -hf patchset against the stable 2.4 Linux kernel in February of 2005 [story]. In response to Marcelo's announcement, Willy replied, "hmmm... Like I once told you, I felt like you were trying to sell me your car, but you seem to have maintained it in very good state so I am confident it will not break after a few miles. I still hope that if I have any problem with it, you will come with your breakdown truck to rescue me :-) I hope I will get criticisms if I do things wrong. It's frustrating to work without feedback (either positive or negative)."
