    Phoronix: More Than 80 Kernel Patches Were Made This Summer By Outreachy Developers

    At this week's Open-Source Summit in Edinburgh there was a kernel internship panel discussion focused on the work done by Outreachy participants, the program paying women and other under-represented groups $5,500 USD for contributing to various open-source projects over a three month period...

      So much money wasted on so little. Again. But at least those delusional managers can fool themselves into thinking they've done something good.

          the program paying women and other under-represented groups
          What groups? As far as I know there are women and men only and it seems women are very bad at IT. Maybe you meant Borel's monkeys, perhaps? When comes to paying some unknown species it's better to invest in blind snipers for US Army. Don't you think they're under-represented? Where are you SJW maggots?

              I am going to say it again , ai that decides which applicants to pick ( http://research.baidu.com/Research_A...dex-view?id=57 ) / verifies the desicions made by humans is the way to go to end unfair ( of irrelevant qualities ) discrimination . Outreachy is the opposite of that and for that reason would illegal if the relevant principles the country that the event is based on , were followed

                  not the same , non discriminatory interships are not unable to achieve their stated purpose

                    Mine was not a rebuttal. It was a humorous comment about how predictable people are. However, a subsequent rebuttal would have constituted refraining from proving my initial statement. Fortunately though for my personal entertainment, and I am typing this while drinking my morning coffee, you succeeded in not doing so
