And it's another quiet week, to no surprise. I think things will start picking up this upcoming week as everybody is getting back from holidays, unless 5.5 just happens to be a particularly easy release (but there's no reason to think that - or the reverse).
Nothing in rc5 really stands out, we have fixes all over
- architectures (MIPS, RISC-V and Hexagon stand out in the diff, but there's powerpc too, and some noise elsewhere from patches from Andrew too)
- security subsystem fixes (apparmor and tomoyo)
but it's generally just a bit of a mixed bag of small fixes all over.
Shortlog appended, it's small enough to easily scroll through for a flavor of what's been going on.
PS. One sad piece of news I got this past week was that Bruce Evans has passed away. Bruce wasn't really ever really much directly involved in Linux development - he was active on the BSD side - but he was the developer behind Minix/i386, which was what I used for the original Linux development in the very early days before Linux became self-hosting.
