  Resolved Question: What happens to Linux
If he is the deciding force on what patches gets approved for the kernel then who would succeed him and how would that affect Linux as a community development project? Could Linus Torvalds death spell the end of Linux? Greywolf you are likely right but what safeguards are in place. Do you think its willed to someone or possibly there is some sort of advanced directive or corporate hierarchy that would allow someone to fill his shoes for approval of kernel patch integration. If it is a corporate safeguard is there also a safeguard that prevents them from converting this to a private project and doing away with it as a gnu open sourced project.
