Linux Could Use A New Maintainer For Its CD-ROM Code
Jens acknowledges that the CD-ROM kernel code "isn't an area of hot development" but is looking for someone willing to take it over as he hasn't the time to devote to it with everything else on his plate.
While the CD-ROM code may not see much code churn or changes these days with many not even using a CD/DVD drive in their modern systems, Axboe noted, "it still needs someone that cares for the code and is available to review and merge patches in a timely fashion. I haven't been able to do so for quite a while."
Those passionate about CD support and have the ability to maintain the kernel code can find out more via this "wanted" message.
