Yeah. :-D

Sadly one of my biggest problems with regression tracking remains:
getting aware of regression reports. I can fully understand that most
people don't care about regzbot for now, but it would really help if
everyone would CC regressions@lists.linux.dev on mails regarding
regressions (e.g. reports or any replies to them).

Still not sure how to approach his use case, but for now I started
adding the usual subsystem commit summary prefixes (e.g. "net:", "usb:",
"drm/amd") to the title of newly added regression, which might help
somewhat and won't hurt.

Hah, fun fact: the order you purposed was the one I initially had in
mind. But I later changed my mind, as I thought 'hey, if the culprit of
the regression is known, it should be able to fix this quickly (e.g. by
a revert, if there are no conflicts) even for regressions that made it
into proper releases".

But whatever: I'm totally fine with this and already changed the web
interface yesterday after your mail arrived, only took a minute:

https://linux-regtracking.leemhuis.info/regzbot/mainline/

Next report will use this order as well.

Definitely. If there is something else you want to see changed or think
is odd wrt to regzbot or my work as regression tracker, just let me know.

Thx for the feedback, much appreciated.

Ciao, Thorsten
