"Google’s Android code will assume its rightful place in
the Linux kernel — in good time, the company’s top open
source guru says.
"The Android code was stripped out of the last kernel release,
version 2.6.33, after Google reportedly failed to provide necessary
changes and subsystem code required by kernel.org.
"This led some to claim Google had forked Linux, a charge that
was debated in a long thread among developers."
