This page presents a brief overview of some of the people you are likely to encounter if you do any community work with ARMLinux. These are listed in no particular order.
Russell is "the" ARM
Linux guy, he did the initial port to Acorn A5000 many years ago and
has continued to provide a huge level of input ever since. His advice
should be heeded as he probably knows the ARM Linux kernel better than
anyone else. Russell maintains the official ARM Linux project
homepage where you can find a large number of resources.
Ben Dooks maintains all things
Samsung including, but not limited to, the S3C2410 and S3C2440 ARM 9
SOC. His extensive work in this area means the samsung range of
processors are one of the best supported. Ben maintains a homepage for ARM Linux things.
Nicolas did a lot of SA1100 and PXA work for the old 2.4 kernel series, his main interests more recently have been with improving ARM Linux floating point support although he continues to contribute to PXA in the 2.6 kernel series. He also argues with RMK... to frustrate RMK ;-)
Zwane works on ARM support on OProfile and states he is a slacker.
Deepak maintains the kernel port to several Intel NPUs, hacks on random bits as needed get kernel working on these NPUs, breaks the kernel to frustrate RMK, and enjoys good Belgian beer. :)
Ralph maintains the community support for the netwinder platform which was a relatively common early ARM platform based on the SA110 processor. Ralph maintains the netwinder.org website.
David is master of all things flash, more specifically the Memory Type Devices subsystem, whilst not exclusive to the ARM platform, we're probably his biggest users.
Thomas is another MTD
maintainer who specialises in NAND. Again although not specifically ARM
related, we're one of the biggest users of their subsystem. Thomas also
pitches in on other small ARM stuff when the whim takes him ;-)
Lennert hacks on anything related to Intel network processors and any other hardware that people throw at him. His motto is "Will work for hardware and beer."
Vince is the ARM 2.4 kernel maintainer and performs several other janitorial roles.
