== How to join the team ==

To join, simply help out. One of the areas where we need the most help is bug triaging. There are several resources on the wiki for helping with bugs, and a few specific to kernel bugs (TODO: insert wiki links here).

Joining the community

The kernel team is always interested in getting community help on the kernel. We need help triaging incoming bugs, reviewing patches proposed for the kernel, as well as helping to fix launchpad bugs. If you want to get involved with the KernelTeam, you can use the following resources:

How do I find the kernel team?

The Kernel Team is primarily IRC based as we are located in disparate cities throughout the world. We typically hang out on the #ubuntu-kernel channel on FreeNode, please be patient if we seem to be quiet. See the KernelTeam page for more details.

Where can we find your Mailing List?

As with the majority of teams our major decisions are discussed and recorded on the Ubuntu Kernel Team mailing list. Join our mailing list at https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/kernel-team. You can read an archive of messages at https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/kernel-team

Where do I find the Kernel Team's documentation?

You can always access our wiki page at Kernel, and our Launchpad page at https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-kernel-team.

What do you need help with?

We need help with all aspects of the maintenance of the kernel. Probably our biggest project is triaging all of the incoming bugs filed against the Ubuntu kernel, you can help us to categorise these and get the necessary information to allow a developer to work on them, see Kernel/BugTriage for information on how you can help.

Other Resources

Where can I find the Ubuntu Kernel source code?

You can access all the kernels for previous and current development releases at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git. There are repositories for each supported release under ubuntu/ubuntu-<release>.git. We use git to maintain all our trees. See Kernel/SourceCode for more details.

Where can I find Development resources and documentation?

We maintain a wiki of development resources to share across the team and the community in the kernel team wiki in the development section, Kernel/Dev.

The Kernel bugs are maintained in LaunchPad, the full list is at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bugs
