Kernel development has always been highly distributed. What has that to do with COVID-19 or is that just click-bait?
Some projects, such as Chrome, have slowed their release cycles.
Distribution is not necessarily a fix to the problem. People can still get infected, suddenly have kids and partners at home. And these are just the reasons when you are lucky. We should not forget that we are in a global pandemic where people die, so grieving and similar are part of the mix.
So, I guess it’s fair to highlight that.
That’s correct. I was simply highlighting that despite the many challenges presented by COVID-19, (infectons, lockdown, kids at home, crazy schedule adjustments, etc), Linux kernel development continued.
