Kernel.org - the Linux Kernel Organizationbusiness
Web Page: http://korg.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Gsoc2010:ideas
The Linux Kernel Organization, more commonly known as kernel.org, is the primary site for the Linux kernel source, but it has much more than just Linux kernels. We provide a multitude of services from the our mirrors of Linux distributions, wikis at wiki.kernel.org to help with documentation, bugzilla.kernel.org to help track kernel bugs, boot.kernel.org providing universal network booting to git.kernel.org providing kernel related git hosting and android.git.kernel.org providing the source code for the Android Linux distribution.
- Boot.kernel.org Automatic installation customization Extend the capabilities of boot.kernel.org (BKO) by providing a web application that allows for customization of Linux installations performed through BKO.
- Centralized Statistics Gathering The open source community relies on a vast array of mirrors to host downloads. While this works well, the current state makes it very difficult to gain information about downloads. The goal of this project is to design and implement a client/server system that records and reports download information to a central server. The server is then responsible for processing the information and generating statistics about project downloads for use by project administrators.
