[RFC PATCH v2 0/2] docs: add a text about regressions to the Linux kernel's documentation

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


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

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

- a lot of small fixes, most are for spelling mistakes and grammar
  errors/problems pointed out in the review feedback I got so far
- add ACK for the series from Greg

v1/RFC (https://lore.kernel.org/linux-doc/cover.1641203216.git.linux@xxxxxxxxxxxxx/):
