I’m right now at the Embedded Linux Conference in Cambridge, UK, where I’m going to talk tomorrow about the Linux Bluetooth stack. The talk will explain how the Linux Bluetooth stack works and show the upcoming features to the stack. I’ll post the slides sometime in the future on this blog. Next week I’ll be at Linux Plumbers, in Cambridge, MA. (Yeah, I’ll visit to two different Cambridges :) to also talk about the Linux Bluetooth Stack.
Since the beginning of October I’m the new Linux Kernel maintainer of the Bluetooth Subsystem. Marcel Holtmann, who was maintaining the trees before will be around as before, but only on patch review now. Only Marcel knows the whole stack, so his help and ack is needed for sure. All rest, like apply patches, check if everything builds correctly and send pull request, is my job. That is not a big change in the Bluetooth subsystem, things should work the same way as before in linux-bluetooth.
You can find my bluetooth-2.6, intended only for bug fixes for the current linux release cycle, here:
and my bluetooth-next-2.6 tree, where the hot fresh stuff goes, here:
