Hi all,

I do not choose to continue as maintainer.

My final act as maintainer is to write down every thing that I've been
doing as maintainer for the past six years.  There are too many demands
placed on the maintainer, and the only way to fix this is to delegate
the responsibilities.  I also wrote down my impressions of the unwritten
rules about how to contribute to XFS.

The patchset concludes with my nomination for a new release manager to
keep things running in the interim.  Testing and triage; community
management; and LTS maintenance are all open positions.

This is an extraordinary way to destroy everything.  Enjoy!
Comments and questions are, as always, welcome.

Create a new document to list what I think are (within the scope of XFS)
our shared goals and community roles.  Since I will be stepping down
shortly, I feel it's important to write down somewhere all the hats that
I have been wearing for the past six years.

Also, document important extra details about how to contribute to XFS.

+XFS Maintainer Entry Profile
+============================
+
+Overview
+--------
+XFS is a well known high-performance filesystem in the Linux kernel.
+The aim of this project is to provide and maintain a robust and
+performant filesystem.
+
+Patches are generally merged to the for-next branch of the appropriate
+git repository.
+After a testing period, the for-next branch is merged to the master
+branch.
+
+Kernel code are merged to the xfs-linux tree[0].
+Userspace code are merged to the xfsprogs tree[1].
+Test cases are merged to the xfstests tree[2].
+Ondisk format documentation are merged to the xfs-documentation tree[3].
+
+All patchsets involving XFS *must* be cc'd in their entirety to the mailing
+list linux-xfs@vger.kernel.org.
+
+Roles
+-----
+There are seven key roles in the XFS project.
+A person can take on multiple roles, and a role can be filled by
+multiple people.
+Anyone taking on a role is advised to check in with themselves and
+others on a regular basis about burnout.
+
+- **Outside Contributor**: Anyone who sends a patch but is not involved
+  in the XFS project on a regular basis.
+  These folks are usually people who work on other filesystems or
+  elsewhere in the kernel community.
+
+- **Developer**: Someone who is familiar with the XFS codebase enough to
+  write new code, documentation, and tests.
+
+  Developers can often be found in the IRC channel mentioned by the ``C:``
+  entry in the kernel MAINTAINERS file.
+
+- **Senior Developer**: A developer who is very familiar with at least
+  some part of the XFS codebase and/or other subsystems in the kernel.
+  These people collectively decide the long term goals of the project
+  and nudge the community in that direction.
+  They should help prioritize development and review work for each release
+  cycle.
+
+  Senior developers tend to be more active participants in the IRC channel.
+
+- **Reviewer**: Someone (most likely also a developer) who reads code
+  submissions to decide:
+
+  0. Is the idea behind the contribution sound?
+  1. Does the idea fit the goals of the project?
+  2. Is the contribution designed correctly?
+  3. Is the contribution polished?
+  4. Can the contribution be tested effectively?
+
+  Reviewers should identify themselves with an ``R:`` entry in the kernel
+  and fstests MAINTAINERS files.
+
+- **Testing Lead**: This person is responsible for setting the test
+  coverage goals of the project, negotiating with developers to decide
+  on new tests for new features, and making sure that developers and
+  release managers execute on the testing.
+
+  The testing lead should identify themselves with an ``M:`` entry in
+  the XFS section of the fstests MAINTAINERS file.
+
+- **Bug Triager**: Someone who examines incoming bug reports in just
+  enough detail to identify the person to whom the report should be
+  forwarded.
+
+  The bug triagers should identify themselves with a ``B:`` entry in
+  the kernel MAINTAINERS file.
+
+- **Release Manager**: This person merges reviewed patchsets into an
+  integration branch, tests the result locally, pushes the branch to a
+  public git repository, and sends pull requests further upstream.
+  This person should not be an active developer to avoid conflicts of
+  interest.
+
+  The release manager should identify themselves with an ``M:`` entry in
+  the kernel MAINTAINERS file.
+
+- **Community Manager**: This person calls and moderates meetings of as many
+  XFS participants as they can get when mailing list discussions prove
+  insufficient for collective decisionmaking.
+  They may also serve as liaison between managers of the organizations
+  sponsoring work on any part of XFS.
+
+- **LTS Maintainer**: Someone who backports and tests bug fixes from
+  uptream to the LTS kernels.
+  There tend to be six separate LTS trees at any given time.
+
+  The maintainer for a given LTS release should identify themselves with an
+  ``M:`` entry in the MAINTAINERS file for that LTS tree.
+  Unmaintained LTS kernels should be marked with status ``S: Orphan`` in that
+  same file.
+
+Submission Checklist Addendum
+-----------------------------
+Please follow these additional rules when submitting to XFS:
+
+- Patches affecting only the filesystem itself should be based against
+  the latest -rc or the for-next branch.
+  These patches will be merged back to the for-next branch.
+
+- Authors of patches touching other subsystems need to coordinate with
+  the maintainers of XFS and the relevant subsystems to decide how to
+  proceed with a merge.
+
+- Any patchset changing XFS should be cc'd in its entirety to linux-xfs.
+  Do not send partial patchsets; that makes analysis of the broader
+  context of the changes unnecessarily difficult.
+
+- Anyone making kernel changes that have corresponding changes to the
+  userspace utilities should send the userspace changes as separate
+  patchsets immediately after the kernel patchsets.
+
+- Authors of bug fix patches are expected to use fstests[2] to perform
+  an A/B test of the patch to determine that there are no regressions.
+  When possible, a new regression test case should be written for
+  fstests.
+
+- Authors of new feature patchsets must ensure that fstests will have
+  appropriate functional and input corner-case test cases for the new
+  feature.
+
+- When implementing a new feature, it is strongly suggested that the
+  developers write a design document to answer the following questions:
+
+  * **What** problem is this trying to solve?
+
+  * **Who** will benefit from this solution, and **where** will they
+    access it?
+
+  * **How** will this new feature work?  This should touch on major data
+    structures and algorithms supporting the solution at a higher level
+    than code comments.
+
+  * **What** userspace interfaces are necessary to build off of the new
+    features?
+
+  * **How** will this work be tested to ensure that it solves the
+    problems laid out in the design document without causing new
+    problems?
+
+  The design document should be committed in the kernel documentation
+  directory.
+  It may be omitted if the feature is already well known to the
+  community.
+
+- Patchsets for the new tests should be submitted as separate patchsets
+  immediately after the kernel and userspace code patchsets.
+
+- Changes to the on-disk format of XFS must be described in the ondisk
+  format document[3] and submitted as a patchset after the fstests
+  patchsets.
+
+- Patchsets implementing bug fixes and further code cleanups should put
+  the bug fixes at the beginning of the series to ease backporting.
+
+Key Release Cycle Dates
+-----------------------
+Bug fixes may be sent at any time, though the release manager may decide to
+defer a patch when the next merge window is close.
+
+Code submissions targeting the next merge window should be sent between
+-rc1 and -rc6.
+This gives the community time to review the changes, to suggest other changes,
+and for the author to retest those changes.
+
+Code submissions also requiring changes to fs/iomap and targeting the
+next merge window should be sent between -rc1 and -rc4.
+This allows the broader kernel community adequate time to test the
+infrastructure changes.
+
+Review Cadence
+--------------
+In general, please wait at least one week before pinging for feedback.
+To find reviewers, either consult the MAINTAINERS file, or ask
+developers that have Reviewed-by tags for XFS changes to take a look and
+offer their opinion.

From: Darrick J. Wong <djwong@kernel.org>

I burned out years ago trying to juggle the roles senior developer,
reviewer, tester, triager (crappily), release manager, and (at times)
manager liaison.  There's enough work here in this one subsystem for a
team of 20 FT, but instead we're squeezed to half that.  I thought if I
could hold on just a bit longer I could help to maintain the focus on
long term development to improve the experience for users.  I was wrong.

Nowadays, people working on XFS seem to spend most of their time on
distro kernel backports and dealing with AI-generated corner case bug
reports that aren't user reports.  Reviewing has become a nightmare of
sifting through under-documented kernel code trying to decide if this
new feature won't break all the other features.  Getting reviews is an
unpleasant process of negotiating with demands for further cleanups,
trying to figure out if a review comment is based in experience or
unfamiliarity, and wondering if the silence means anything.

For now, I will continue to review patches and will try to get online
fsck, parent pointers, and realtime volume modernisation merged.

I nominate Chandan Babu to take over release management for the upstream
kernel's XFS code.  He has had sufficient experience merging backports
to the 5.4 LTS tree, testing them, and sending them on to the LTS leads.

NOTE: I am /not/ nominating Chandan to take on any of the other roles I
have just dropped.  Bug triager, testing lead, and community manager are
open positions that need to be filled.  There's also maintainer for
supported LTS releases (4.14, 4.19, 5.10...).

It seems I have to clarify my previous message.  I'm stepping down as XFS
maintainer.  I'm /continuing/ as a senior developer and reviewer for XFS.

I've really enjoyed my work developing XFS and bringing new online
capabilities to the filesystem.  I've struggled with the role of
maintainer for many years though, as it's impossible for one person to
do all the things that are expected of a maintainer.

I recognize that some of the stress I've put on myself, by trying to
ensure that every patch has a Reviewed-By, and I'm usually the one who
has to do that review.  It hasn't been fair.

I'm excited to continue development on XFS, and am leaving the
maintainership in capable hands.  I'm /very/ excited about online
repair, as part 2 is almost complete and ready to be sent out!

Thanks Chandan!

Chandan asked if it was wise to forbid the release manager from /ever/
writing patches.  I decided that it wouldn't be the end of the world if
the RM produced bug fixes from time to time, or simple cleanups of
grotty parts of the codebase.  I also recalled that my real goal here
was to break the very frustrating dynamic that I encountered wherein
reviewers of the maintainer's feature patchsets refuse to sign off
unless the maintainer agrees to expand the scope of the work to include
yet more cleanups.

I withdraw this last sentence and replace it with:

"If a developer and a reviewer fail to reach a resolution on some point,
the release manager must have the ability to intervene to try to drive a
resolution."

Note: I'll keep doing this part too, since I already have all those
connections.

I think breaking responsibility down is very sensible, and should hopefully
allow you to not burn out. Given I realize how difficult it is to do all
the tasks, and since I'm already doing quite a bit of testing of XFS
on linux-next I can volunteer to help with this task of testing lead
if folks also think it may be useful to the community.

The only thing is I'd like to also ask if Amir would join me on the
role to avoid conflicts of interest when and if it comes down to testing
features I'm involved in somehow.

Good question.  Amir?

(/me also notes that he's listed as R: in fstests MAINTAINERS so he can
pinch hit if there are conflicts of interest, at least for xfs/iomap
stuff.)

I am more than happy to help, but I don't believe that I currently perform
or that I will have time to perform the official duties of **Testing
Lead** role.

I fully support the nomination of Luis and I think the **Release Manager**
should be able to resolve any conflict of interests of the **Testing Lead**
as feature developer should any such conflicts arise :)

Thanks,
Amir.

Fair enough.

Darrick, I suppose just one thing then, using M for Testing Lead seems
likely to implicate the 'Testing Lead' getting Cc'd on every single new
patch. As much as I could help review, I don't think I can commit to
that, and I think that's the point of the current split. To let us split
roles to help scale stuff.

So how about a separate new prefix, TL: ? Adding Linus in case he has
a stronger preference to only keep us at one character fist index on
MAINTAINERS.

Note that we're talking about "M:" entries in the *fstests* MAINTAINERS
file, not the kernel...

...so I'm cc'ing Zorro since he's the owner of the relevant git repo.
Hey Zorro, do you have any opinions about how to record who's
responsible for each filesystem adding tests for new code and whatnot?

... from fstests project, for a patch on a linux-$FSTYP project?

I think a specific fs test lead is a contributer for that fs project more,
not for fstests. The test lead need to report test results to that fs
project, not necessary to report to fstests.

And a test lead might do more testing besides fstests. So I can't imagine
that I need to check another project to learn about who's in charge of the
current project I'm changing.

(If I understood anything wrong, please correct me:)

Not for the kernel, no.  Just the contributions to fstests.

For example, if I were sending a patch deluge, the online fsck testing
patches would be cc'd to you; to whomever's listed as M: under XFS in
fstests MAINTAINERS; and fstests@ and linux-xfs@.

The kernel patches would be cc'd to linux-xfs, and to whomever steps up
to review the code (who are we kidding, dchinner).

xfsprogs patches for online fsck would be cc'd to linux-xfs and Carlos.

I disagree -- yes, /developers/ (and the release manager) should be
running tests and reporting those results to that fs project.

However, I defined the testing lead (quoting from above):

"**Testing Lead**: This person is responsible for setting the test
coverage goals of the project, negotiating with developers to decide
on new tests for new features, and making sure that developers and
release managers execute on the testing."

In my mind, that means the testing lead should be reviewing changes
proposed for tests/xfs/* in fstests by XFS developers to make sure that
new features are adequately covered; and checking that drive-by
contributions from others fit well with what's already there.

(That's what I thought you wanted out from the people mentioned in the
fstests MAINTAINERS file...)

...so the testing lead would be the person who you'd talk to directly
about changes that you want to make.

(Wait, who is "I" here?  You, Zorro?  Or were you paraphrasing a
developer?)

This I thought I could do.

This should be included in the description if that's part of the role.
This alone is a task and I'm afraid *that* does require much more time
commitment and experience I don't think I have with XFS yet. And so it
would seem to me a more experience developer on both fstests and XFS
would be required for this.

I could certainly help try to set a high bar, but to actually ensure
correctness of XFS test patches, I do think that should require a more
seasoned XFS developer and with fstests.

Well I certainly invite you to try! :)

<shrug> I think someone familiar with running a QA organization would
know exactly the sorts of things that need testing and how to make a
reasonably thorough test plan.  They wouldn't necessarily need to know
all that much about the xfs codebase per se, though obviously they'd
need to be familiar with C and all of its marvelous footguns.

(As for testcase review: is that the job of the code reviewer?  or the
test maintainer?  I don't know...)

At this time, our testing is so ... uneven ... that "someone who feels
totally comfortable with calling bs on obviously inadequate testing and
people will listen to" is probably qualification enough. :)

I'll look you up in #kdevops (the irc) next week.

OK, you or (the one you nominate to be the XFS testing lead) might want to send
a patch to fstests@, to add a "M: xxx" under "XFS" (xfstests/MAINTAINERS.),
and add this new definition of "Testing lead" part to "M:" flag in
xfstests/MAINTAINERS. We can talk about more details under that patch.

OK I don't need a documented tag to try that, so will chug on to try to
help with that.

<-- QA stuff -->

FWIW I never have worked with a QA team other than to ask what they do, the
work I do simply is designed to be used by kernel developers for kernel
developers. Why? Because I don't want to disrupt a QA team. If they want
to use it, then great.

OK best I can do is just try, specially in light of "burnout", so to try to
help as communal effort.

I think it helps to quantify the work required, so to ensure I can also
commit and don't break my own responsibilities elsewhere, breaking it
down just for XFS specific tests:

git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-01-01" --until="2023-02-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
17
git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-02-01" --until="2023-03-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
26
git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-03-01" --until="2023-04-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
10
git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-04-01" --until="2023-05-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
1
git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-05-01" --until="2023-06-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
4
git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-06-01" --until="2023-07-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
5
git log --pretty=oneline --since="2023-07-01" --until="2023-08-01" tests/xfs/ | wc -l
5

Lemme just try...
