Linux Kernel Autogenerated Regression Tests
===========================================
linux-arts repository is dedicated to preserving the autogenerated
regression tests for regression testing.
Automates testing entities such as Syzbot generate reproducers to test
the kernel. It is a manual process to download reproducers and once the
bug is fixed, kernel developers loose track of these reproducers.
As per the decision made at a session at the Maintainers Summit 2019,
this git repository is created to preserve the reproducers.
Please find the details on the discussion that lead to this decision
