The RTL Collaborative Project

The RTL Collaborative Project was first announced in October 2015.

The Real-Time Linux (RTL) Collaborative Project was founded by industry experts to advance technologies for the robotics, telecom, manufacturing, and medical industries. The RTL Collaborative Project will initially focus on pushing critical code upstream to be reviewed and later merged into the mainline Linux kernel with ongoing support. RTL’s Thomas Gleixner, who has been maintaining the RTL branch for more than a decade, will become a Linux Foundation Fellow to dedicate even more time to this project.
