CIP (Civil Infrastructure Platform) project aims to support industrial-grade systems by fulfilling the required level of reliability, sustainability, and security during their life cycles which are long, typically more than 10 years. CIP kernel and test teams are working to provide and maintain Linux kernel to sustain CIP activities overall. In order to sustain activities for such a long period, the teams adopt "Upstream First" as development principle. The “Upstream First” principle allows patch commits only if those patches are already in the upstream. Having both pros and cons, this principle turned out to be crucial and essential to continue releases and maintenance. The CIP kernel team works with Linux Kernel LTS and other open source projects to share its findings and contribute outputs. The CIP test team has strengthened automated testing systems for CIP by working with KernelCI and LAVA. This presentation updates activities of the CIP kernel and test teams which follow the "Upstream First" principle, and features collaborative works with Linux Kernel LTS, KernelCI and LAVA.
