Default Bug#651467: kernel-handbook: patches are not split by patchlevel any more

Package: debian-kernel-handbook
Version: 1.0.12

Oh, nice. Thanks.

Before I forget, here are sections of the kernel-handbook that do not
reflect this yet.

chapter-scope.sgml: 1.1 "Scope"

replace "Lenny release of Debian (version 5.0)", by "Wheezy
release of Debian (version 7.0)"

chapter-common-tasks.sgml: 4.1 "Obtaining the Debian kernel source"

remove the paragraph starting with "In order to get the
Debian kernel source at a patchlevel <em>different</em> from
the one provided by the current linux-source-<var>version</var>
package".

in the next paragraph, remove "to achieve any patchlevel up to
<tt><em>N</em></tt> (e.g. patch level 8 for 2.6.18-8)".

chapter-packaging.sgml: 3.2 "Architecture-independent packages"

remove the phrase ", bringing the source to the desired
patchlevel".

the paragraph on kernel-patches/all/<var>version</var>/debian/series
probably needs to be rewritten.

remove the note starting "Note that there is currently a bug
in the script"

Since the online copy of the kernel handbook is often used by people
working with squeeze, this should probably be done as two patches ---
one to add a note to the relevant sections that this detail is
different between squeeze and wheezy, and another to remove the old
details once we no longer care about them.

Please can you provide patches?

Teamwork is essential - it allows you to blame someone else.

Of course. I just filed it quickly so I don't forget.
