kernel shell / kernels helper
Linux kernel workflow utilities
These scripts could be helpful for other projects as well... maybe.
kernelsh script is a simple command caller and simply calls the
kernelsh-* scripts for you, so you can do
kernelsh apply-mbox <args...>
All scripts provide a help flag "-h" or "--help".
kernelsh script itself can be called with "-h", too.
This is only for the linux kernel, right?
My very first idea of the scripts were and still are for kernel development. But they (or some of them) can be useful for other projects, too.
For example the
apply-mbox command can be used in other projects as well if
you use email-patch workflows where you send your patches via mail around.
Submitting issues, patches or feature-requests via the github issue tracker, please.
If you submit sources: They must be executeable right away. I do not accept stuff which must get compiled on the first hand. So propably all non-scripting languages are out. But I really do not care if you submit Perl, Ruby, Python, Bash, sed or awk, as long the source is readable and I can execute the scripts without installing some additional software. Don't forget to put comments in your code!
(For example: I do not install a PHP interpreter on my machine just to be able to run a kernel helper script! The upper examples of scripting languages can be assumed as standard-install on a todays linux machine, and that's what we want)
