Hi Ben,

I've been asked to introduce myself to the list, before getting into
discussions. So here's a very brief summary.

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?

I've been working for Toshiba Industrial ICT solutions for about 3 years and a half.
That included customizing Linux kernels (mostly driver- and RT-related issues)
and root filesystems [1] for a wide range of embedded systems; as well as
doing research on real-time partitioning, security [2], fast boot, and software updates [3].

# I also have experience developing non-Linux real-time embedded systems
# (e.g. RTOSes, drivers, real-time network protocols, or an ARM Trustzone monitor [4])

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.
Yeah, I think so too!
