Linux Seeks Help From More (And More Diverse) Coders


Linus Torvalds and Intel developer Sarah Sharp met face-to-face on Wednesday, their first public encounter since their mailing list contretemps over the blunt way Torvalds treats the software coders who work on Linux, the massively popular open source operating system he created and still oversees.

But there weren’t any fireworks. They didn’t even address the issues Sharp raised this summer.

Speaking at a Linux user conference, held in New Orleans and streamed over the web, Sharp sidestepped any controversy, but she did tell her audience that the Linux project needed to find new ways of hanging on to people who contribute to “the kernel,” the software at the heart of the operating system.
