Google’s Open Source Peer Bonus Program has recognized Konsulko Group’s own Tom Rini for his contributions as the maintainer of U-Boot. Congratulations to Tom for his hard work maintaining this critical part of many embedded Linux systems.
Five years ago the Open Source Programs Office established the Open Source Peer Bonus Program to remind Googlers of the importance of the myriad developers outside of Google who keep open source healthy and growing.
The program works like this: we invite Googlers to nominate open source developers outside of the company who deserve recognition for their contributions to open source used at or relied on by Google. After review by a team of volunteer engineers, the recipients receive our heartfelt thanks and a small token of our appreciation.
We have recognized more than 500 open source developers from 30+ countries who have contributed their time and talent to over 400 open source projects.
Having just finished the latest round of the program, we’d like to recognize the individuals and the projects they worked on. Here’s everyone who gave us permission to thank them publicly:
