Being a Linux kernel maintainer involves knowing about a large number of implicit or unwritten rules. This talk is an attempt to make such rules more explicit and through this, help both new maintainers and contributors. By having a better knowledge of these rules, they will have a better understanding on how and when to send their contributions.

First we will start with a reminder of what the role of a maintainer is and how to get involved. Then we will see the process through which a patch gets accepted. And finally the interaction with the other maintainers both horizontally (the ones from parallel subsystem or the co-maintainers) and vertically (from the upper or bottom subsystems) will be discussed.

The talk will be illustrated by real examples and by the tools used to ease this work.
