Linux Kernel 3.10 RC1
Linux è un popolare sistema operativo open source creato da Linus Torvalds

Note di rilascio:

So this is the biggest -rc1 in the last several years (perhaps ever) at least as far as counting commits go, even if not necessarily in actual lines (I didn´t check the statistics on that).

Which was unexpected, because while linux-next was fairly big, it wasn´t exceptionally so. I´m sure Stephen Rothwell will talk about the statistics of commits that weren´t in -next, we´ll see if that was the reason..

Anyway, despite the large number of commits, hopefully it´s all boringly straigthforward. Sure.

Now, even normally, there´s no way to list all the changes, much less so when it´s an unusually large -rc1. But I can do my "merge shortlog" again, and it´s worth mentioning (again) that the name attributed to the merge is *not* necessarily the author of any of the code, it´s literally just the person who emailed me the pull request. So you can see this as an approximation of "first-level maintainership" or something, although even that is somewhat misleading since some of these things are really done by groups and then there´s one person who end up sending me the end result.

But it´s somewhat readable, and gives you a reasonable idea of what is going on. A better idea can be gotten by looking at git directly, especially since the merge commits often do contain a better description of what happened. Not that all submaintainers necessarily always send me that, but most of the merges actually do have human-readable background information.

It´s possible that I missed something. This really was a busier merge window than usual. Holler if so,
