The Linux Foundation Technical Advisory Board, which is made up of top Linux kernel developers, reports on what was found in its complete examination of University of Minnesota patches.

Here is the actual report.

@AgreeableLandscape@lemmy.ml - on the blogspam discussion, is this a case where I can start changing the URL to the right source? ZDNet is rarely the actual source for content. I’ve asked @strubbl@lemmy.ml previously why they aren’t linking to the direct source as they post slashdot often as well.

Edit: You know I could have sworn I could change submission URL on Lemmy, but can’t find the feature.

As a mod, you can’t change the URL on other people’s posts. Users can change the URL on their own posts though.

I wouldn’t consider this blogspam personally, it’s a lot more likely they read the article and just wanted to share it.

Those numbers are much better than I would have expected. Of course you probably can’t generalize them as they are only from examining patches from the same institution but still for me it’s rather impressive how few bad patches made it in the kernel according to this.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
