# I don't follow. Are you saying you treated MAINTAINER lines in the
# Makefile's as the official list, or /usr/src/MAINTAINERS as the official
Inofficial: Makefiles with MAINTAINER=
But the official file has at its bottom a list of inofficial Makefile
references. I'm trying to get down that list to zero entries, by telling
those folks to please make an official entry, removing their MAINTAINER=
line in foo/Makefile, and deleting their unofficial line in the official
file. This is exactly what dougb's text in /usr/src/MAINTAINERS says,
Following are the entries from the Makefiles, and a few other sources.
Please remove stale entries from both their origin, and this file.
Please also consider removing the lines from the files listed below and
stating your preferences here instead.
Does that answer your question? The intent is to have one and only one
place to look for maintainership, (the top) of /usr/src/MAINTAINERS.
Ideally, there'd be no distinction bewteen top and bottom of
/usr/src/MAINTAINERS. I'm just trying to make happen what dougb added to
/usr/src/MAINTAINERS on 04-Jun-03.
It appears though, just grepping Makefiles was too narrow a search, as
MAINTAINER= seems to also appear in c source and some other files. I'll
verify if I have removed someone unintentionally.
