Keeping Up with Carrier Grade
On October 16, 2002, I had the opportunity to meet Greg Kroah-Hartman when he was invited to attend one of the CGL WG meetings. Greg was asked to make a presentation on how to work with the Open Source community. Greg gave a good presentation and had a lot of examples of how to do things the right way and how to do things the other way. He also explained the best approaches to work with the community. It was an session, especially because some of the attendees had little prior interaction with the kernel development community.
I encourage the Open Source community to take a close look at what OSDL is doing with regards to CGL. The CGL specifications, the source code contributions by member companies and the work of the PoC group to implement the specification represent a valuable contribution to Linux.
The CGL WG has a challenging mission. A lot of work has been done and much more remains to be done, especially in such areas as security and kernel stability; these are areas in which the PoC WG can contribute, assuming it has enough resources. With the ultimate goal being to improve Linux and make it succeed in the telecom space, everyone's involvement, cooperation and commitment is needed.
Bon Courage, and for all those participants at OLS, happy hacking, keep up the good work and see you next year!
Many thanks go to Andrew Hutton and the OLS team for organizing such a great event and to my colleagues who reviewed this article.
