[RFC PATCH v1 0/2] docs: add a document dedicated to regressions

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


'We don't cause regressions' might be the first rule of kernel development, but
it and other aspects of regressions nevertheless are hardly described in the
Linux kernel's documentation. These patches change this by creating a document
dedicated to the topic.

The second patch could easily be folded into the first one, but I kept it
separate, as it might be a bit controversial. This also allows the patch
description to explain some backgrounds for this part of the text. Additionally,
ACKs and Reviewed-by tags can be collected separately this way.
