If you don't get a decent answer from PLUG (I don't have one), you
might try addressing that question to Jonathan Corbet, editor of LWN
and sometime kernel hacker: corbet at lwn.net.
Another avenue: Greg Kroah-Hartman lives in Portland or nearby, I
think. He maintains the -stable branch of the kernel. I think he's
employed by Novell, but I'd be surprised if he couldn't pass some
quality names your way: gregkh at suse.de.
