Submission + - Android's possible readmission to Linux Kernel (theregister.co.uk)

MonsterTrimble writes: "At the Linux Collaboration Summit, Google and Linux Kernel Developers are meeting to discuss the issues surrounding the Android fork and how it can be re-admitted to the mainline kernel. From the article:
"James Bottomley, Linux SCSI subsystem maintainer and Novell distinguished engineer, said during the kernel panel forks are prevalent in embedded systems where companies use the fork once then "throw it away. Google is not the first to have done something like this by far, just the one that’s made the most publicity." Bottomley said. "Hopefully the function of this collaboration summit is there is some collaboration over the next two days and we might actually solve it.""
