* doc: add maintainer bookTobin C. Harding2017-12-111-0/+34
There is currently very little documentation in the kernel on maintainer level tasks. In particular there are no documents on creating pull requests to submit to Linus. Quoting Greg Kroah-Hartman on LKML: Anyway, this actually came up at the kernel summit / maintainer meeting a few weeks ago, in that "how do I make a good pull request to Linus" is something we need to document. Here's what I do, and it seems to work well, so maybe we should turn it into the start of the documentation for how to do it. (quote references: kernel summit, Europe 2017) Create a new kernel documentation book 'how to be a maintainer' (suggested by Jonathan Corbet). Add chapters on 'configuring git' and 'creating a pull request'. Most of the content was written by Linus Torvalds and Greg Kroah-Hartman in discussion on LKML. This is stated at the start of one of the chapters and the original email thread is referenced in 'pull-requests.rst'. Signed-off-by: Tobin C.
