Submitting Patches to Upstream Open Source Projects

Posted by Scott on Feb 18th, 2011

I was recently asked to give a short presentation to the Yocto Project team about how to upstream patches most effectively. I thought I’d share it:

I don’t think there’s anything too revealatory here, but it might serve as a good reminder of some best practices for collaborating with open source communities. One thing I will say is that I have been impressed with Intel’s commitment to getting our work integrated upstream when possible. My management really cares about this, not simply because it makes our work easier in the long-run, but because it’s part of being a good open source citizen. And as an additional bonus it keeps us on Greg Kroah-Hartman’s good side. 🙂
