Distribution Kernels Microconference Accepted into 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference

We are pleased to announce that the Distribution Kernels Microconference has been accepted to the 2019 Linux Plumbers Conference. This is the
first time Plumbers has offered a microconference focused on kernel distribution collaboration.

Linux distributions come in many forms, ranging from community run distributions like Debian and Gentoo, to commercially supported ones offered by SUSE or Red Hat, to focused embedded distributions like Android or Yocto. Each of these distributions maintains a kernel, making choices related to features and stability. The focus of this track is on the pain points distributions face in maintaining their chosen kernel and common solutions every distribution can benefit from.

Example topics include:

  • Backporting kernel patches and how to make it easier
  • Consuming the stable kernel trees
  • Automated testing for distributions
  • Managing ABIs
  • Distribution packaging/infrastructure
  • Cross distribution bug reporting and tracking
  • Common distribution kconfig
  • Distribution default settings
  • Which patch sets are distributions carrying?

“Distribution kernel” is used in a very broad manner. If you maintain a kernel tree for use by others, we welcome you to come and share your experiences.

Here is a list of proposed topics. For Linux Plumbers 2019, new topics for microconferences can be submitted via the Call for Proposals (CfP) interface. Please visit the CfP page for more information.
