Subject[PATCH 1/3] Documentation: -stable rules: upstream commit ID requirement reworded
Date
From: Stefan Richter <stefanr@s5r6.in-berlin.de>

It is a hard requirement to include the upstream commit ID in the
changelog of a -stable submission, not just a courtesy to the stable
team. This concerns only mail submission though, which is no longer
the only way into stable. (Also, fix a double "the".)
