Hi folks,

I've just committed some outstanding patches to the xfstests
repository. The commits are listed below for your information,
with the current head being:

0a7f216b7962fd15e0fd749110776ca69b718932 generic: add a rename fsync test

Some book-keeping stuff follows.

Firstly, I'm going to look into adding commit hooks into the
xfstests repository to get it send automated commit message emails
when the repo is updated like is done for the main xfs kernel
repository. That will save having to walk through every patch
replying to say "applied".

I'd like to start by getting those emails sent to the XFS, btrfs and
ext4 mailing lists, but I'm open to having them sent elsewhere, too.
I'm open to ideas about whether this is too many lists or
whether there are other lists we should send such email to.

Secondly, you might note that I rewrote the subject lines of the
commits below. The main reason for doing this is to make the git log
readable and to give an idea of what was changed in the commit. So,
some new conventions I'd like to see people try to use for their
xfstests patch descriptions.

        1. the first word describes the tests/ subdirectory the
           change belongs to. e.g. xfs, btrfs, generic, shared, etc

        2. if it's an infrastructure change or touches multiple
           different sets of tests, then use "xfstests" as the keyword

        3. Don't use test numbers in commit messages or subject
           lines for new tests. We typically have to renumber tests
           as part of the commit process, so if we forget to modify
           the commit message then it looks rather strange....

        4. when fixing a specific test, always refer to it as
           "<subdir>/<name>", such as generic/273 or btrfs/022.
           This is needed because we can have duplicate test names
           in different sub directories.

Hence a typical set of subjects might be:

xfs: fix fubaroo in xfs/299
generic: use correct frobnozzle on generic/230
xfstests: prevent bozo errors when compiling ltp/iogen.c

This makes life easier when browsing the commit history. I'll be
modifying subject lines as I process them to follow these
conventions, so if people adopt them it makes it better for

Lastly, I'm going to try to keep the commit latency of reviewed
xfstests patches to around 24-48 hours after the patch has been
reviewed. I don't want reviewed patches to sit around for weeks
before they are committed, so please ping the patch if it's been
reviewed and not committed after a couple of days.

Thanks all,
