Learning The Process To Review Linux Kernel Patches

Daniel Vetter of Intel's Open-Source Technology Center has putout some slides covering the general process for reviewing patches, in order to help out those new to contributing to the open-source community.

The slides made by Daniel were originally part of some of his internal training material for new Intel employees dealing with the Linux world and cover the technical review and the process. The slides cover details from the common Git "Reviewed-by" tag to how to go about a lengthy code review of someone else's patches.

Daniel's original purpose for these slides were for helping those out new to the Intel DRM Linux kernel driver but he broadened them up to make it relevant to the general newbie development community too. You can find these PDF slides via Vetter's blog.
