Dennis,

If Linus Torvalds deems the patch inappropriate, I end up with a
"customized" OS which precludes me from "normal" PTF's, right?
What happens when Linus decides he doesn't want to mess with Linux any more?

        Hi, Lurton:

        Good question, but the answer (in Linux' case) is no, because all
the final
        stuff is routed through one person for implementation.  Linus T
(can't
        remember his last name) is the originator/"owner" of Linux, and he
remains
        responsible for merging all the patches that are deemed appropriate
for
        inclusion in the kernel.
