What is tip-bot?

Alexander Holler
Hello,

until now I could successfully suppress my curiosity about those tip:foo
messages, but as the bot (or one of them) has now catched me too, I want
to ask what it is.

Searching for "tip(-)bot" or similiar doesn't reveal some useful info
(for obvious reasons). Could someone give me an URL to source or
documentation about that tool so that I can enlight myself about it's
meaning?

Thanks in advance,

Alexander

AFAIK tip-bot is a set of shell scripts used by _T_glx, _I_ngo and _P_eter. :)

So messages from tip-bot are just acknowledgments (like those from Greg)
that a patch has found it's way into one of the trees, with the
difference that tip-bot sends those acknowledgments to lkml too, whereas
Greg's scripts send them only to involved parties and not the lkml?

Regards,

Alexander

Yes, that is my understanding of it.

Thanks a lot for clarification.

In the meanwhile I've found an article at lwn about the kernel
development process which lists many of the git repositories used by
various maintainers. And that list includes tip. ;)

So the reason for my ignorance was that I didn't know that tip is
actually the name of a git repository used by the x86 maintainers.

Regards,

Alexander

I can understand that.

The kernel tree MAINTAINERS file says for X86:
