Description

Since 2017, syzbot (powered by syzkaller - a coverage-guided kernel fuzzer) has already reported thousands of bugs to the Linux kernel mailing lists and thousands have already been fixed.

However, as our statistics show, a lot of reported issues get fixed only after a long delay or don't get fixed at all. That means we could still do much better in addressing the needs of the community than we currently do.

This talk will summarize and present the changes that have been made to syzbot over the last year. Also, we want to share and discuss with the audience our further plans related to making our reports and our tool more developer-friendly.
