This talk begins with a description of the Linux kernel janitors project and how it works, then moves on to how anyone can become involved in kernel patches and development. It discusses working via mailing lists, etiquette, documentation, patch formats, working with maintainers, and some examples, then proceeds to related projects and tools and how to use them. It wraps us with a summary of the OSDL and its Linux projects.
