In an effort to make it a bit easier to maintain the kernel-secnext COPR I'm
making some slight changes to how I manage the SELinux and audit kernel
repositories. The downside is that there is now going to be a regular rebase
as part of the release cycle, but at least it will be well defined and part of
the process, unlike the current reactionary rebases.
Starting with the next merge window, I'll be following the process below:
1. When a new kernel is released, rebase the repository's upstream branch to
the tagged kernel release (or the latest LSM upstream branch in the case of
SELinux) and apply the next branch on top of the upstream branch. Send a pull
request for the upstream branch to the next level maintainer.
2. Create a new branch, stable-X.XX, a copy of the upstream branch that was
sent during the merge window.
3. Reset the next branch to the upstream branch that was sent during the merge
window. At this point the upstream, next, and latest stable-X.XX branch
should be identical.
4. Accept patches into both the stable-X.XX and next branches; as necessary,
send pull requests for stable-X.XX to the next level maintainer. Continue
until the next kernel is released and the process repeats.
As in the past, this process is subject to change, but I'm hopeful that this
approach should work for the foreseeable future.
