The development of the Linux kernel is a complex process performed by a large community of contributors. Fortunately, many details about both the process and the development community are captured in the information stored in the git repository. This presentation will show how the MetricsGrimore and vizGrimoire toolsets can be used to perform targeted analysis and visualizations of this information. In addition, the results of some specific studies performed with the tools will also be shown as an illustration of their capabilities and easy of use. Those will include the main parameters of the evolution of the kernel development community, the changes to the source code over time (including the areas more stable and those being actively modified), and the identification of the areas which are gaining and losing developers.
