After this patch, I would prefer to see a requirement that each Documentation/
file contain a "topic" line and then generate INDEX files from those automatically...


I actually have a script that can audit the 00-INDEX files, as part of my build stuff:

Manually auditing these isn't hard for me, it's just that since went all-in on locking the barn door after the horses escaped, I haven't had access to my old account (I need to meed kernel developers in person to get keys signed, which doesn't happen much).

And even if I did get a new ssh key, you don't get shell access anymore you get "kup" which is a git wrapper you can't rsync through. So fixing problem 1 opens up problem 2 and I still can't do anything useful. (Navigating the new bureaucracy is on my todo list, but not really something I sit down and go "oh boy, I should work on THIS" on any given evening.)

So I haven't been able to update since the breakin, and my tools for auditing the 00-INDEX files and htmldocs and menuconfig and so on are all tied up with that.
