The Kernel Janitor's Project grew out of our search for things to help in the development of the Linux kernel, and learning from other patches submitted by more experienced people, we saw that some of these patches indicated error patterns that could exist in other parts of the kernel, we looked and... yes, we discovered that some parts of the kernel suffered from the same problems and in the process we found code bitrotting... I (acme) started maintaining a TODO list for things to fix or clean up and people started submitting suggestions for things to fix that I collected at http://bazar.conectiva.com.br/~acme/TODO, looking at the httpd logs I discovered that _lots_ of people accessed it, so this indeed was something useful as a starting point for people also wanting to help in cleaning up/fixing parts of the kernel. Now we're expanding this so that this continues to be useful, hosting it at sourceforge to make possible for other people to include more things to clean/fix. So, get your broom and start cleaning! 8)
