Thanks. I can set up a cron job, but in reality it looks prettier than
it actually is.

Part of the problem is that "make htmldocs" doesn't reliably build
between about -rc1 and -rc4 or so. It's usually not part of anybody's
regression testing, and when it DOES fail the output is usually crazy
stuff like:

xmlto: /home/landley/linux/linux/Documentation/DocBook/80211.xml does
not validate (status 3)
xmlto: Fix document syntax or use --skip-validation option
/home/landley/linux/linux/Documentation/DocBook/80211.xml:13074: element

Document /home/landley/linux/linux/Documentation/DocBook/80211.xml does
not validate

Which means what, exactly? (That particular example was from last week,
it's been fixed since upstream. I added --skip-validation to my xmlto
invocation because more stuff built. There are still two blank entries
in http://kernel.org/doc/htmldocs/ are because their builds broke. I
should pull and run it again and see if those build now...)

Oh, another fun thing is that my Documentation index is created from the
00-INDEX files when those exist, and there's usually version skew
between that file and the directory contents.

I have a http://kernel.org/doc/make/doclinkcheck.py which finds the
files it lists which don't exist and the files which exist but aren't
listed. The current list of files 00-INDEX says exist, but aren't at
that location, is:

404 errors:
Documentation/time_interpolators.txt
Documentation/voyager.txt
Documentation/powerpc/booting-without-of.txt
Documentation/powerpc/mpc52xx-device-tree-bindings.txt
Documentation/arm/msm
Documentation/arm/Samsung-S3C24XX
Documentation/arm/Sharp-LH
Documentation/arm/SPEAr
Documentation/arm/empeg/
Documentation/PCI/PCI-DMA-mapping.txt
Documentation/networking/dgrs.txt
Documentation/networking/ethertap.txt
Documentation/networking/wavelan.txt
Documentation/w1/masters/mxc_w1
Documentation/vm/slabinfo.c
Documentation/serial/hayes-esp.txt
Documentation/filesystems/dentry-locking.txt
Documentation/filesystems/reiser4.txt
Documentation/s390/zfcpdump

The list of files which exist but aren't in a 00-INDEX is crazy long so
I won't post it here. (I can if you're interested...)

I'll probably get around to chipping away at some of that, but first I
need to do a proper 2010 OLS paper index. (And that's just a
chronological index. A _topic_ index is a huge undertaking. I did a
quick search for the NFS guys last night and came up with 7 papers, and
I haven't even checked 2010 yet. I'm only even considering an OLS paper
topic index because I'd only have to _update_ it once a year, so the
work involved is at least finite...)
