| Last week Hisham Muhammad gave a talk at Latinoware 2007, the IV 
| Latin-American Conference on Free Software, which took place at Itaipu, the 
| largest hydroelectric power plant in the world. The slides for the talk (in 
| Portuguese) are available at the documentation page, in ODF and PDF formats.   


Linux is developing at a growing pace.

Linux Symposium 2007 - a summary

,----[ Quote ]
| Greg Kroah-Hartman has been digging through the kernel source repositories 
| for statistics much like your editor has. The resulting numbers are similar, 
| though Greg has cranked through the full 2+ years of history in the mainline 
| git repository and, thus, has a longer-term sort of view. Among other things, 
| he concluded that, in that time, the kernel developers have averaged almost 
| three changes per hour - every hour - during that time. About 2000 lines of 
| code are added every day. That is a pace of development which is matched by 
| few - if any - projects anywhere in the world. Greg also notes that the 
| number of developers involved is growing with each release. This, he says, is 
| a good sign; the kernel community is bringing in new developers, important to 
| keep the process healthy.          


40 feet of kernel developers

| OveQuoter 40 feet long, hopefully I can find a wall that long for people to 
| be able to look at the thing... 
| I also uploaded the PDF files if others want to try their hand at printing 
| this monstrosity out.
