Hi Ben,

I've been working on the Linux kernel for about 10 years, including
co-maintenance of Debian's kernel package for most of that time. Debian
provides security support for each stable release for 5 years, and in
support of that I backported many fixes to 2.6.32-longterm and took on
maintenance of the 3.2-longterm and 3.16-longterm branches.

I'm now adding another part-time role as lead kernel maintainer for the
CIP. I look forward to working with you all to establish a project and
process that can extend the support lifetime even further.
Welcome to the CIP project. It's great to have such an experienced maintainer
in the project. Looking forward to working with you too!
Daniel, can you tell us a little about yourself?

My name is Agustín Benito Bethencourt. I represent Codethink at CIP. I've
managed teams-programs-projects for some years ago, the last in the open.
My name is Domenico Andreoli, I've been using Linux since 1995 and
actively contributed to Debian for about a decade. I've always worked
with Linux, on Linux, for Linux, thanks to Linux, mainly in the embedded
context but I learned that without the necessary shared values, Linux
is not fun at all.

Although I'm not really active nowdays, my FOSS imprinting imposes me
to at least observe and keep me informed. So I'm here, just representing
myself, with bags full of 2 cents.

I am looking forward to find out how we are going to deal with this
outstanding challenge, keeping a Linux system alive and healthy for many
years in mission critical environments. I think it is an exciting one.
Yes, very exciting.

Do we recognize that big irons and small IoT leaves are in the same
need also here?

Kind regards,
