Kernel Documentation: What We Have and How We'll Make it Better - Jon Corbet, LWN.net

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It is often said that kernel developers don't care about documentation, but the truth can be seen in the kernel repository: thousands of documentation files and tens of thousands of kernel-doc comments. The problem is that it's all a bit ... messy. Your speaker, in the role of the kernel's documentation maintainer, is trying to clean things up a bit. The talk will cover the current state of kernel documentation, what's being done to make it better, and, along the way, some of the interesting challenges that come with being a kernel subsystem maintainer in general.
