Objective: Maintainer buy-in
Drive for adoption of the project as an integral part of the Linux kernel development workflow by Linux kernel maintainers.
- Maintainers require basic CI to pass before reviewing/accepting/merging
- Maintainers require test cases for acceptance of new features running in CI
Objective: Broad adoption
Promote participation from and adoption by kernel developers, and hardware manufacturers to use and improve the ecosystem.
- Kernel developer community becomes dependent on good automation and CI
- Hardware manufacturers depend on KernelCI for production kernel quality
- Downstream kernels depend on upstream testing by KernelCI
Objective: Community collaboration
Join forces with existing testing projects and work towards a shared set of tooling and infrastructure.
- Consolidated email reports going to kernel community: “one report to rule them all”
- Maintain a shared reporting and visualization service (kernelci.org) for upstream kernel testing
- Maintain a shared set of code and tools available for use by derivative projects
Objective: Membership growth
In order to achieve the mission and objectives, funding is needed. Funding comes primarily from project membership dues through the Linux Foundation.
- Highlight member technologies
- New members: 1-2 per year
- Available funding for on-going project management, software development, infrastructure, support and community engagement initiatives
