Linux Symposium 2007 - a summary

,----[ Quote ]
| Greg Kroah-Hartman has been digging through the kernel source repositories
| for statistics much like your editor has. The resulting numbers are similar,
| though Greg has cranked through the full 2+ years of history in the mainline
| git repository and, thus, has a longer-term sort of view. Among other things,
| he concluded that, in that time, the kernel developers have averaged almost
| three changes per hour - every hour - during that time. About 2000 lines of
| code are added every day. That is a pace of development which is matched by
| few - if any - projects anywhere in the world. Greg also notes that the
| number of developers involved is growing with each release. This, he says, is
| a good sign; the kernel community is bringing in new developers, important to
| keep the process healthy.
