      Drop all 00-INDEX files from Documentation/ · a7ddcea5
      Henrik Austad authored
      This is a respin with a wider audience (all that get_maintainer returned)
      and I know this spams a *lot* of people. Not sure what would be the correct
      way, so my apologies for ruining your inbox.
      
      The 00-INDEX files are supposed to give a summary of all files present
      in a directory, but these files are horribly out of date and their
      usefulness is brought into question. Often a simple "ls" would reveal
      the same information as the filenames are generally quite descriptive as
      a short introduction to what the file covers (it should not surprise
      anyone what Documentation/sched/sched-design-CFS.txt covers)
      
      A few years back it was mentioned that these files were no longer really
      needed, and they have since then grown further out of date, so perhaps
      it is time to just throw them out.
      
      A short status yields the following _outdated_ 00-INDEX files, first
      counter is files listed in 00-INDEX but missing in the directory, last
      is files present but not listed in 00-INDEX.
      
      List of outdated 00-INDEX:
      Documentation: (4/10)
      Documentation/sysctl: (0/1)
      Documentation/timers: (1/0)
      Documentation/blockdev: (3/1)
      Documentation/w1/slaves: (0/1)
      Documentation/locking: (0/1)
      Documentation/devicetree: (0/5)
      Documentation/power: (1/1)
      Documentation/powerpc: (0/5)
      Documentation/arm: (1/0)
      Documentation/x86: (0/9)
      Documentation/x86/x86_64: (1/1)
      Documentation/scsi: (4/4)
      Documentation/filesystems: (2/9)
      Documentation/filesystems/nfs: (0/2)
      Documentation/cgroup-v1: (0/2)
      Documentation/kbuild: (0/4)
      Documentation/spi: (1/0)
      Documentation/virtual/kvm: (1/0)
      Documentation/scheduler: (0/2)
      Documentation/fb: (0/1)
      Documentation/block: (0/1)
      Documentation/networking: (6/37)
      Documentation/vm: (1/3)
      
      Then there are 364 subdirectories in Documentation/ with several files that
      are missing 00-INDEX alltogether (and another 120 with a single file and no
      00-INDEX).
      
      I don't really have an opinion to whether or not we /should/ have 00-INDEX,
      but the above 00-INDEX should either be removed or be kept up to date. If
      we should keep the files, I can try to keep them updated, but I rather not
      if we just want to delete them anyway.
      
      As a starting point, remove all index-files and references to 00-INDEX and
      see where the discussion is going.

      [NetLabel]: documentation · 8802f616
      Paul Moore authored
      Documentation for the NetLabel system, this includes a basic overview
      of how NetLabel works, how LSM developers can integrate it into their
      favorite LSM, as well as documentation on the CIPSO related sysctl
      variables.  Also, due to the difficulty of finding expired IETF
      drafts, I am including the IETF CIPSO draft that is the basis of the
      NetLabel CIPSO implementation.
