From maintaining I2C to the big (embedded) picture

The I2C subsystem is not the shiniest part of the Linux Kernel. For embedded devices, though, it is one of the many puzzle pieces which just have to work. Wolfram Sang has the experience of maintaining this subsystem for nearly 7 years now. This talk gives a short overview of how maintaining works in general and specifically in this subsystem. But mainly, it will highlight noteworthy points in the timeline and lessons learnt from that. It will present trends, not so much regarding I2C but more the Linux Kernel and the embedded ecosystem in general. And of course, there will be plenty of anecdotes and bits from behind the scenes for your entertainment.
