This is an old news. Does anyone know the latest situation ?

As a direct result of the conversations at the Linux Collaboration Summit, Google had decided to devote some members of their android team to porting their kernel modifications and submitting them to the Linux Kernel team. I know that Google has some ARM drivers in the mainline kernel, but I do not know if any other source code has been submitted yet.

Last time I checked they were planning in getting in back to the main line. Don't know if that has happened yet

When I browse the linux kernel source at http://lxr.linux.no/#linux+v2.6.34/, I type "android" in the search field. There are some search results related to the string 'android'.

Can I conclude, up to now, android is still part of the linux kernel? Maybe only kernel moderators can answer my question . . .

I have pieced it together from the author e-mail addresses and device type.

if you grep the contents of the kernel for "@google.com" you will see their contributions, the majority of them so far are ARM drivers which apply to mobile electronics and I assume the android devices.

If you want the command I use to parse out specific files that have had contributions from specific domains then I will share it in here.

No. Thanks. I just want to know if google wants to follow the linux community or establish her standard by using andriod,
