"Sorry for the very long delay in getting this project back up off the ground. When I first announced it back in January, I never expected it to be so popular. Unfortunately, it ended up being pushed way back on my priority list as I had to deal with my day job at Novell first, then my Linux kernel development, then with any spare time left over, this project," Greg KH announced on the newly created Linux Driver Project Developer mailing list. He noted the project's official web page and explained:
"The good news is that this has now changed. As of today, Novell is sponsoring me to work on this Linux driver project as my first priority. This means I will have the time and resources to commit to managing the different developers and driver projects as part of my daily job."
The Linux Driver Project was originally announced in January of 2007.
