Kernel Team

The Kernel Team aims to provide the best kernel for Ubuntu by maintaining a high-quality, consistent package across the supported and unsupported arches.

Overview

The leader of the kernel team is Ben Collins.

The Linux kernel in Ubuntu has, until this point, been primarily maintained by a series of different individuals. As Ubuntu takes on more architectures and more users, it needs a solid team to help maintain this essential piece of infrastructure.

Discussion for the team currently occurs on the [http://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/kernel-team kernel-team] list.
