Thread-topic: MAINTAINERS file for Xen
User-agent: Microsoft-Entourage/

I am creating a Linux-style MAINTAINERS file to place at the root of the
main Xen repository. The intention is to document maintainers for
sub-sections of Xen, toolstack, and kernels (i.e., the scope of the file is
whole-project and hence multi-repository).

Any comments on this file, or requests for further entries to be added,
please let me know. I plan to check the MAINTAINERS file into xen-unstable
early next week. Of course changes can continue to be submitted as patches
against xen-unstable after that time.

    List of maintainers and how to submit changes

Please try to follow the guidelines below.  This will make things
easier on the maintainers.  Not all of these guidelines matter for every
trivial patch so apply some common sense.

1.    Always _test_ your changes, however small, on at least 4 or
    5 people, preferably many more.

2.    Make sure your changes compile correctly in multiple
    configurations. For example, both 32- and 64-bit x86.

3.    Make a patch available to the relevant maintainer in the list. Use
    'diff -u' to make the patch easy to merge. Be prepared to get your
    changes sent back with seemingly silly requests about formatting
    and variable names.  These aren't as silly as they seem. One
    job the maintainersdo is to keep things looking the same.

    PLEASE try to include any credit lines you want added with the
    patch. It avoids people being missed off by mistake and makes
    it easier to know who wants adding and who doesn't.

    PLEASE document known bugs. If it doesn't work for everything
    or does something very odd once a month document it.

    PLEASE remember that submissions must be made under the terms
    of the "Developer's Certificate of Origin" (DCO) and should include
    a Signed-off-by: line.

4.    Make sure you have the right to send any changes you make. If you
    do changes at work you may find your employer owns the patch
    not you.

5.    Happy hacking.

Descriptions of section entries:

    M: Mail patches to: FullName <address@domain>
    L: Mailing list that is relevant to this area
    W: Web-page with status/info
    T: SCM tree type and location.  Type is one of: git, hg, quilt, stgit.
    S: Status, one of the following:
       Supported:    Someone is actually paid to look after this.
       Maintained:    Someone actually looks after it.
       Odd Fixes:    It has a maintainer but they don't have time to do
            much other than throw the odd patch in. See below..
       Orphan:    No current maintainer [but maybe you could take the
            role as you write your new code].
       Obsolete:    Old code. Something tagged obsolete generally means
            it has been replaced by a better system and you
            should be using that.
    F: Files and directories with wildcard patterns.
       A trailing slash includes all files and subdirectory files.
       F:    drivers/net/    all files in and below drivers/net
       F:    drivers/net/*    all files in drivers/net, but not below
       F:    */net/*        all files in "any top level directory"/net
       One pattern per line.  Multiple F: lines acceptable.
    X: Files and directories that are NOT maintained, same rules as F:
       Files exclusions are tested before file matches.
       Can be useful for excluding a specific subdirectory, for instance:
       F:    net/
       X:    net/ipv6/
       matches all files in and below net excluding net/ipv6/
    K: Keyword perl extended regex pattern to match content in a
       patch or file.  For instance:
       K: of_get_profile
          matches patches or files that contain "of_get_profile"
       K: \b(printk|pr_(info|err))\b
          matches patches or files that contain one or more of the words
          printk, pr_info or pr_err
       One regex pattern per line.  Multiple K: lines acceptable.
