Summary of torvalds/linux

The torvalds/linux repository is one of the most influential and well-known repositories on GitHub. It contains the source code for the Linux kernel, the central or core component of the Linux operating system.

The repository is named after Linus Torvalds, the creator of the Linux kernel. Torvalds started development of Linux in 1991, and it's been worked on by thousands of contributors since then. It's written predominantly in the C programming language with a little bit of assembly among others.

The Linux kernel is often used as a case study for open source development because of its size, its longevity, and the quantity of developers that contribute to it.

This repository allows anyone to view, use, modify, and distribute the project's source code. It's constantly being updated with new releases to fix bugs, add features, and improve security. It's also a great resource for anyone interested in learning about operating system design and kernel development.

Everyone can contribute to this repository by making a pull request. However, mainly due to its critical importance in functioning of various systems, accepted pull requests go through an intense rigour of testing and code reviewing.

However, beginners should be wary as the Linux kernel is a very complex piece of software to understand, considering it is one of the largest open source projects in existence.
