List Description Subscribe Archive (LKML) Linux Kernel Development: technical discussions related to upstream and RT tree patches with all developers and maintainers. LKML FAQ The Aims Group Real-Time Linux Users: Release announcements, bug reports and handling, general usage questions, development or user-space tools (e.g. rt-test suite) MajorDomo GMANE, glibc open development list Sourceware RedHat

Note the subtle difference in description of linux-kernel and linux-rt-users lists above. The linux-rt-users list is intended for users who want to ask questions about using the -rt patch set. Kernel-related development issues about the real-time patchsets should be sent to the linux-kernel.

Thomas Gleixner wrote regarding this:

All patches against the RT tree should be posted to LKML. CCing rt-users is fine, but development needs to happen on the main kernel development list because only a few developers/maintainers are subscribed to rt-users.

Theodore Tso wrote regarding this:

One of the reasons why we (in consultation with folks like Ingo and tglx) deliberatly didn't create a RT development list was that in order to promote getting -rt related patches into mainline as soon as possible, we wanted to keep patch and development discussion on LKML. For example, it's not clear that the ARM maintainer subscribes to linux-rt-users; furthermore the more patch discussion happens on LKML, it helps promote willingness of other kernel developers that CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT isn't going to go away, and will probably (hopefully!) be merged into mainline someday soon.

If you are interested in sending improvements, please see the Sending Patches section of the CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT Patch page.
