Maintenance policies and early considerations II

Agustin Benito Bethencourt <agustin.benito@...>


a second consideration discussed during the meeting. Feel free to provide your opinions or considerations about them.

++ How should the kernel be released?

+++ Binaries or sources

While commercial distributions like RHEL/SLE include a small number of supported kernel configurations in binary form, the CIP kernel should be primarily released as source, with the configuration controlled by its users.

+++ Kernel features

The project needs to decide which architectures, drivers and other kernel features are to be supported by the core team and its releases. This could be documented purely as human-readable text or in a machine-readable form so that the kernel build process can warn when building an unsupported configuration. It may also be sensible to specify the supported toolchain versions.
