    Subject[ANNOUNCE] kpatchup 0.02 kernel patching script
    This is the first release of kpatchup, a script for managing switching
    between kernel releases via patches with some smarts:

    - understands -pre and -rc version numbering
    - aware of various external trees
    - automatically patch between any tree in an x.y release
    - automatically download and cache patches on demand
    - automatically determine the latest patch in various series
    - optionally print version strings or URLs for patches

    Currently it knows about 2.4, 2.4-pre, 2.6, 2.6-pre, 2.6-bk, 2.6-mm,
    and 2.6-tiny.

    Example usage:

    $ head Makefile
    VERSION = 2
    PATCHLEVEL = 6
    SUBLEVEL = 2
    EXTRAVERSION =-rc2
    [...]
    $ kpatchup 2.6-mm
    2.6.2-rc2 -> 2.6.4-rc1-mm1
    Applying patch-2.6.2-rc2.bz2 -R
    Applying patch-2.6.2.bz2
    Applying patch-2.6.3.bz2
    Downloading patch-2.6.4-rc1.bz2...
    Applying patch-2.6.4-rc1.bz2
    Downloading 2.6.4-rc1-mm1.bz2...
    Applying 2.6.4-rc1-mm1.bz2
    $ head Makefile
    VERSION = 2
    PATCHLEVEL = 6
    SUBLEVEL = 4
    EXTRAVERSION =-rc1-mm1
    NAME=Feisty Dunnart
    [...]
    $ kpatchup -q 2.6.3-rc1
    $ head Makefile
    VERSION = 2
    PATCHLEVEL = 6
    SUBLEVEL = 3
    EXTRAVERSION =-rc1
    NAME=Feisty Dunnart
    [...]
    $ kpatchup -s 2.6-bk
    2.6.4-rc1-bk3
    $ kpatchup -u 2.4-pre
