Subject[PATCH] MAINTAINERS: clarify that "B:" is the URI where to file bugs
Date
Different subsystems and drivers have different preferences for where to
file bugs and what information to include. 686564434e88 ("MAINTAINERS:
Add bug tracking system location entry type") added "B:" entry for this.

Clarify that "B:" specifies the URI for the bug tracker directly, a web
page for detailed info on filing bugs, or a mailto: URI.

Fixes: 686564434e88 ("MAINTAINERS: Add bug tracking system location entry type")

Rafael, I just noticed the "B:" entry popped up in MAINTAINERS from
686564434e88 ("MAINTAINERS: Add bug tracking system location entry
type").

I've been pushing this for some time now, and I'd sent the last patch
adding this before the kernel summit discussion you refer to [1], and
Andrew picked it up, along with the rest in the series. This is where
the whole idea came from!

Specifying "B:" as URI lets subsystems decide whether it contains a bug
tracker or something else.
