A look into how, when and why Linus posts to the kernel mailing list.
Linus Torvalds sometimes is criticized for bombastically cursing out kernel
developers. He does do this, but it's not his default behavior, and I think
the real nature of when and how he posts to the mailing list is interesting.
For example, he stayed out of the whole discussion of how to replace the
BitKeeper revision control system for a long time, letting various projects
guess frustratingly at his desires, before he finally took a break from Linux
development to design and implement git.
