2005-09-21[PATCH] README update from the stone agePaolo 'Blaisorblade' Giarrusso1-3/+6
We have no options which the user can set in the Makefile. Only the EXTRAVERSION, which is also useful in place of the "backup modules" suggestion. We don't have configuration options in the top Makefile.

2005-07-27[PATCH] Add text for dealing with "dot releases" to READMEKurt Wall1-0/+10
The emergence of so-called "dot releases" that are non-incremental patches against a base kernel requires different handling of patches (revert previous patches before applying the newest one). This patch adds a paragrach to $TOPDIR/README explaining how to do deal with dot release patches.

2005-04-16Linux-2.6.12-rc2Linus Torvalds1-0/+305
Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history, even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about 3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good infrastructure for it. Let it rip!
