Okay, will do. :-D

/me wonders why he suddenly feels like entering a self-made trap ;-)

Did you mean a different headline for the entry?  Or would you suggest
to use a webpage (W:) for that or a Subsystem Profile document (P:)
here? Using either of the two latter was the plan, but for now I'm a bit
unsure what to write there except maybe "Thorsten is working on a
semi-automatic solution for tracking Linux kernel regressions. Details
will follow. For now report regressions as outlined in
reporting-issues.rst; but in case you have any problem or think there is
a regressions not handled appropriately by the maintainers, get him
involved, he'll try to help".

Or did you have something totally different in mind?

Ciao, Thorsten
