Subject[PATCH] MAINTAINERS: List the section entries in the preferred order
From
Date
The MAINTAINERS file header has never shown a preferred order for the
section entries but scripts/parse-maintainers.pl added a preferred
order with commit 61f741645a35 ("parse-maintainers: Add section pattern
sorting")

Commit 5cdbec108fd2 ("parse-maintainers: Do not sort section content by
default") changed the preferred order to be a bit more sensible.

Update the MAINTAINERS section description block to use this preferred
section entry ordering.

Add a slightly better description for the N: entry too.

it has been replaced by a better system and you
should be using that.

F: *Files* and directories wildcard patterns.
A trailing slash includes all files and subdirectory files.
F: drivers/net/ all files in and below drivers/net
F: drivers/net/* all files in drivers/net, but not below
F: */net/* all files in "any top level directory"/net
One pattern per line. Multiple F: lines acceptable.

N: Files and directories *Regex* patterns.
- N: [^a-z]tegra all files whose path contains the word tegra
+ N: [^a-z]tegra all files whose path contains tegra
+ (not including files like integrator)
One pattern per line. Multiple N: lines acceptable.
scripts/get_maintainer.pl has different behavior for files that
match F: pattern and matches of N: patterns. By default,
get_maintainer will not look at git log history when an F: pattern
match occurs. When an N: match occurs, git log history is used
to also notify the people that have git commit signatures.
- X: *Excluded* files and directories that are NOT maintained, same
- rules as F:. Files exclusions are tested before file matches.
- Can be useful for excluding a specific subdirectory, for instance:
- F: net/
- X: net/ipv6/

K: *Content regex* (perl extended) pattern match in a patch or file.
For instance:
K: of_get_profile
