This document describes Linaro's overall kernel process, from upstream focused development to release of regular (currently monthly) development snapshots for use by Linaro members and the larger ARM-Linux ecosystem.

Process Goals

Linaro's kernel process is an upstream-focused driven by several goals:

  1. Ensuring that new technology developed by Linaro makes its way into the upstream kernel.org tree
  2. Ensuring that Linaro member's platforms are always working in the upstream kernel.org tree
  3. Delivering a monthly validated kernel that works on Linaro member's platforms.
