2010-08-04Documentation: update broken web addresses.Justin P. Mattock1-3/+3
Below you will find an updated version from the original series bunching all patches into one big patch updating broken web addresses that are located in Documentation/* Some of the addresses date as far far back as 1995 etc... so searching became a bit difficult, the best way to deal with these is to use web.archive.org to locate these addresses that are outdated. Now there are also some addresses pointing to .spec files some are located, but some(after searching on the companies site)where still no where to be found. In this case I just changed the address to the company site this way the users can contact the company and they can locate them for the users. Signed-off-by: Justin P.

2010-03-07HOWTO: Updates on subsystem trees, patchwork, -next (vs. -mm)Stefan Richter1-77/+36
One of the roles which -mm fulfilled some time ago (to offer an integration testing ground) has been taken over by -next. This is still news to Documentation/HOWTO, so mention it there. Also add a word on how patchwork is used to track patches as they make their way into subsystem trees. Remove some arbitrary links to subsystem repositories; they can all be found in the MAINTAINERS database.
