Testing linux kernel code is challenging because of the speed and the diversity of the changes. Many companies are
attempting to tackle this through the use of automation and CI (continuous integration).

Red Hat contributes to stabilizing the upstream linux kernel using its Enterprise class hardware.
The Continuous Kernel Integration ("cookie") team has had successes in various ways; e.g. in being able
to scale, adding multiple kernel trees to testing and uncovering kernel bugs.

Over time, more people are starting to view CI for kernel in a bit more positive light.
More cooperation with various companies and individuals could help to make a real difference.

This talk will discuss what Red Hat has done in this space, how it is trying to cooperate with others
and what issues we're seeing in trying to take our work into the next level.

We encourage you to share and invite people who might be interested; this talk
is suitable for anyone in kernel testing/tools, CI and related topics.
