Subject: [PATCH] MAINTAINERS: rectify file patterns for NETFILTER
Date: Mon,  9 Nov 2020 10:19:42 +0100
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The two file patterns in the NETFILTER section:

  F:      include/linux/netfilter*
  F:      include/uapi/linux/netfilter*

intended to match the directories:


A quick check with ./scripts/ --letters -f will show that
they are not matched, though, because this pattern only matches files, but
not directories.

Rectify the patterns to match the intended directories.

Signed-off-by: Lukas Bulwahn <>
applies cleanly on v5.10-rc3 and next-20201109

Pablo, Jozsef, Florian, please pick this minor non-urgent clean-up patch.
