As we evolve as software developers we not only have to consider how to better evolve
software but also how to more efficiently backport it. The Coccinelle engine was
developed to help evolve writing software faster and more efficiently, but can it also be
used to help backport? This talk will cover how SmPL was embraced by the Linux
backports project to help it backport the Linux kernel more effectively, more automatically,
and to help the effort scale.
This talk is intended for Linux kernel developers and kernel tree maintainers. No
experience with SmPL is required.Survey this Session
