How to Get Your Code Into Xen: The Xen Development Workflow - George Dunlap, Citrix Systems R&D UK Ltd

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If you are new to the Xen community and want to know how the development process works -- and in particular, if you want to know how you can get your changes in -- this talk is for you. My goal is that by the end you will have a framework for how the process works, and a good set of pointers and principles for being ready to dive in and submit your first patch -- or your first series. Topics will include: What's a maintainer? How does the development window and feature freeze work? How do I make a good patch series? What if I'm not sure if my code is a good idea or not? What if I need to make a big change and I'm not sure the correct approach?
