How to subscribe Linux Kernel Mail List



The Linux kernel mailing list (LKML) is the primary electronic mailing list for Linux kernel development. It is where most announcements, discussions, debates, and flame wars over the kernel occur. While other mailing lists exist for discussing different subsystems and ports of the Linux kernel, LKML is the main communication channel among Linux kernel developers. It is a very high-volume list, typically receiving about 1,000 messages per day, most of which are kernel code patches.
