Normally, you’d think that when the ‘boss’ is away, that the ’employees’ will slack-off. But the exact opposite is what happens with Linux kernel developers.
Linux founder and maintainer of kernel development, Linus Torvalds was out of the country for a bit, but instead of a break, he got a deluge.
“As suspected, spending most of the week in Japan made some kernel
developers break out in gleeful shouts of ‘let’s send Linus patches
when he is jet-lagged, and see if we can confuse him even more than
usual’, ” Torvalds wrote in a mailing list posting. “As a result -rc4 has about twice the commits that -rc3 had.”
