Events/Kernel Summit 2011 ARM Subarch Maintainership Workshop

Jump to: navigation, search

We're currently planning an ARM Subarchitecture Maintainership Workshop for the first day of Kernel Summit in Prague, October 23, 2011. Watch this page for details, or contact Grant Likely, Nicolas Pitre, or Arnd Bergmann.

There is limited space available for this meeting. Seats were provided on a first-come, first-served basis and we have now surpassed our self-imposed limit of 24 people. However, if you still would like to attend, or would like to nominate someone who you think is an important participant, then email Grant Likely <>. We may be able to open up additional seats as needed.

We're also extending an open invite to all kernel summit invitees. If you've been invited to kernel summit and you'd like to attend the ARM workshop, then email Grant so that we know you are coming. Otherwise we'll make you sit on the floor.

Proposed agenda topics

Here is the current list of proposed discussion topics. Feel free to add items to this list.
