I once sent a mail to Linus Torvalds, requesting him to bless something like this. My justification was that corporates (IBM, Oracle, Redhat) employ kernel hackers in order to get their most wanted features into the kernel. It could very well mean the server/enterprise side of things. But how does the ordinary desktop user vote for their choice of features - maybe even through money ?

It would have been nice if he could have backed something like, a StackOverflow for opensource bugs/feature requests with payment integration.

Didnt hear back though!




Why don't you build it? Linus didn't as Andy Tanenbaum for permission to improve MINIX, nor Richard Stallman for sponsorship to build the Hurd Kernel... Homey just threw down a tarball...
