"The challenge in providing useful documentation for the Linux
kernel, Landley said, is therefore to index what is already out
there. When a source of some documentation for some item gains
enough traction, it becomes the de facto source of documentation
for that particular subsection of the kernel, and from then on gets
found and maintained. But there is a big integration problem, as
such sources of documentation are scattered around.
"It is hard enough for Linux kernel developers to keep up with
the Linux Kernel Mailing List, Landley noted, let alone to read all
the other lists out there and keep track of the ever-growing supply
of documentation. Putting all the kernel documentation found around
the Internet together is itself a full-time job. Jonathan Corbet of
LWN, he noted, is good at this already, but there are several
people doing it each their own way in their own space."
