Well, the kernel maintainers of course. And whoever is maintaining it
now (sorry, I don't who that might be). I don't see what is the problem.
Assuming the kernel module is merged in (that might not be easy, of
course) then it will have to be kept up to date with the mainline kernel
but that is good. And probably not that much work, after all the
midishare kernel module is not evolving, right?

They don't need to update the kernel. Why would they? The midishare
kernel module will keep working on the older kernels, right?

That would be a good first step.

The "kernel module problem" is still there. I do distribute my own
kernels (not that I like to do that :-) but some users use the normal
Fedora kernel. Then I would have to track the Fedora kernels and build
midishare modules for them as well. And right now Planet CCRMA does not
have any software that needs it (except maybe for Common Music but I
have been using portmidi for that - yuck...)
