Submission + - Alan Cox No Longer The Linux TTY Maintainer 1

The Slashdolt writes: After a stern criticism from Linus, the long-time kernel hacker Alan Cox has decided to walk away as the maintainer of the TTY subsystem of the Linux Kernel. Stating:

"...I've had enough. If you think that problem is easy to fix you fix it. Have fun. I've zapped the tty merge queue so anyone with patches for the tty layer can send them to the new maintainer."

Making it quite clear that he is serious.
