You don't need to do something special, but you need to do something ;-) Regzbot will know the regression got resolved if the commit message of the fix (a proper one or a revert) in mainline links to the report with a Link: tag. Hence, the commit should have something like this: Link: https://email@example.com/ This is something you and many other developers often do already -- and something that submitting-patches.rst since a few days states explicitly: https://git.kernel.org/torvalds/c/1f57bd42b77c But even if you forget that: As a regression tracker I still have an eye on things and likely would tell regzbot about it myself, *if* I notice the fix/revert got merged (and if not, I might send a quick 'hey' what's up here' mail, which will be a bit annoying for the involved parties, but that's how it is). Side note: regbot will even notice if a patch with above Link-Tag gets posted to one of the mainline list and link to it. That afaics answered the question, but TWIMC: this report created some challenges for me/regzbot due to two aspects: 1) the report specifies two commits as culprit 2) the problematic changes are in mainline, 5.15.y and 5.14.y, and I'm unsure as of now how to handle such situations For the first aspect I for now settled on "well, just mentioned the second of the two commits, that's good enough for regzbot, the details are in the report anyway". I'm ignoring the second aspect for now and told regzbot only about the commit in mainline, as my focus for regzbot is on mainline. I guess to handle this properly, it would be possible to enhance regzbot and then tall it about 807ac762afee (that's the backport of b7a0a792f864 to 5.14) as well. But you and Sasha afaics handle things like this already quite well afaics. But if that would make your life easier, just let me know, than I'll put it higher on my todo list. Ciao, Thorsten
