Stable maintainer tools
This set of tools is useful for people who maintain -stable like trees either
with collaboration with the community, or privately inside their company.
The focus of this tool is sharing the knowledge and work done by multiple
-stable tree maintainers without creating overhead for each maintainer.
Configuration is simple, and consists of 3 environment variables. For example,
in my case they are:
export STABLE_MAJ_VER="3" # The major version of the tree I'm maintaining
export STABLE_MIN_VER="18" # The minor version of the tree I'm maintaining
export OTHER_STABLE_TREES="stable/linux-3.10.y stable/linux-3.14.y stable/linux-4.1.y stable/linux-4.2.y" # Other -stable trees that live within the same repository.
