TLDR: Please tell me directly (by CC or forward) or via regzbot (see below) about any regression reports you stumble upon, as I'm giving regression tracking another shot. This time I'm doing it with the help of a bot, which really could need a lot to chew on for a proper test-run. Hi everyone! Years ago I did regression tracking for the Linux kernel for a while. Back then tracking and writing weekly reports was a manual and quite exhausting effort. Nevertheless, I'm giving regression tracking another shot. But this time I'll leave the hard work to a bot I wrote just for this purpose, which is specifically tailored to the needs of Linux kernel development. I tested this 'regzbot' a little in the past few weeks, but I need more regression reports now to shake out bugs and see where things might need big adjustments or fine-tuning. Hence, if you see any regression reports, please tell be about them, for example by simply forwarding the mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or CCing that address on a reply. I'll handle everything else then and tell regzbot about it. But if you feel adventurous, you can also skip me as the man-in-the-middle and tell the bot directly. To do that, just send a reply to the report to the regressions mailing list (email@example.com) either directly or by CCing it on a reply you would have written anyway; when doing so, place something like '#regzbot ^introduced v5.15..' (separated by blank lines) somewhere in the text, as outlined in regzbot's 'getting started guide' or its reference documentation: https://gitlab.com/knurd42/regzbot/-/blob/main/docs/getting_started.md https://gitlab.com/knurd42/regzbot/-/blob/main/docs/reference.md That's it, regzbot then on its next run will add the report to the list of tracked regression. I'll keep an eye on things and try to fix any problems I notice, as there likely will be a few. But then doesn't need to bother you. There is one thing that would really help: if one or two subsystem maintainers could give regzbot a shot for all the regression reports they get, even for easy fixes, as the bot really needs something to chew on. Any volunteers? As years ago I'll send weekly regression reports, but this time they will get generated directly from regzbot. But thx to the bot there is now also a web-view which provides an always up2date view into the data gathered by regzbot: https://linux-regtracking.leemhuis.info/regzbot/mainline/ Ciao, Thorsten
