Speaker

Thorsten Leemhuis

Description

This session will provide a very quick and brief overview about Thorsten’s recent regression tracking efforts, which are performed with the help of the regression tracking bot “regzbot”. Thorsten afterwards wants to outline and discuss a few oddities and problems in Linux development he noticed during his work that plague users – for example how bugzilla.kernel.org is badly handled and how some regressions are resolved only slowly, as the fixes take a long time to get mainlined.

In addition to that he will also outline some of the problems that make regression tracking hard for him in the hope a discussion will find ways to improve things. The session is also meant as a general forum to provide feedback to Thorsten about his work and discuss the further direction.
