-Periodically Kalle Valo pulls the ath tree into wireless-drivers-next tree. Then David Miller pulls it to net-next which is eventually pulled by Linus Torvalds to official kernel releases. As a rough estimate it takes 2-4 months for a patch to propage from ath.git to an official Linux release.+===== Git branches =====
  
 +ath.git contains multiple branches: ​
  
-===== Submitting ​patches ​=====+  * **master:** The default branch selected when cloning the tree. Everyone working on any ath drivers (ath10k, ath9k, ath6kl etc) should use this branch as the baseline for patches ​and when testing latest code. Follows Bob Copeland'​s wireless-testing tree and contains the latest -rc release from Linus Torvalds + latest wireless + latest ath patches from ath-next and ath-current branches. The branch is rebased every time it's updated. Due to unclean history bisect will not work, better to use ath-next (or ath-current) for bisecting.  
 +  * **ath-next:​** Based on Kalle'​s wireless-drivers-next tree and will be periodically merged to wireless-drivers-next and scheduled for the next release under works (not for the current -rc releases). ath patches are commited to this branch first and then merged to the master branch. For bisect runs it's better to use this branch instead of the master branch. All patches adding new features or low priority fixes go to this branch. 
 +  * **ath-current:​** Based on Kalle'​s wireless-drivers tree and will be periodically merged to wireless-drivers and scheduled for the current release under works (for the upcoming -rc release). Only critical fixes. 
 +  * **pending:​** Used for building and runtime testing patches under review. Is rebased almost daily and hence commit ids are NOT stable. Use this only if you know what you are doing.  
 +  * **master-pending:​** The pending branch merged on top of the master, for easier testing of the pending patches. Same rules apply as with the pending branch.
  
-Send patches to the mailing lists below. Kalle Valo reviews the patches within the next few days and, if they are ok, commits them to ath.git.  +See also [[en/users/drivers/ath10k/submittingpatches|submitting ​ath10k ​patches]] for more information about the patch flow.
-      * To: [[mailto:​ath10k@lists.infradead.org|ath10k@lists.infradead.org]]  +
-      * Cc: [[mailto:​linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org|linux-wireless@vger.kernel.org]]  +
- +
-Preferably use ath.git master branch as the baseline for patches. Other trees can be used as well, but then the chances of conflicts are higher.  +

-        * [[en/​developers/​Documentation/​git-guide|en/​developers/​Documentation/​git-guide]]  +
- +
-Guidelines for patches:  +
-          * MUST be compiler warning free.  +
-          * MUST be sparse warning free.  +
-          * Commit log MUST not be empty.  +
-          * The commit log MUST answer the question "​Why?":​  +
-             * Describe the motivation behind the bug.  +
-             * How does it change the functionality from user's point of view?  +
-             * Does it fix a bug? If it does, please describe the bug (doesn'​t need to be long). Also if there'​s a public bug report add a link to the bug report.  +
-             * If a problem has been found during code review and doesn'​t fix a known issues, mention that in the commit log.  +
-          *   If others have reported the issue commit log SHOULD use Reported-by:​ and Tested-by: tags.  +
-          *   ​SHOULD be checkpatch clean:  +
-               * FIXME: add checkpatch example with correct arguments  +
-          *     ​Patches SHOULD be sent with git send-email tool.  +
-          *     ​Patchsets SHOULD contain no more than 12 patches.  +
-          *     ​Patches SHOULD follow ​[[en/users/Drivers/ath10k/CodingStyle|ath10k ​coding style]]  +
- +
-The terminology is from [[http://​www.ietf.org/​rfc/​rfc2119.txt|http://​www.ietf.org/​rfc/​rfc2119.txt]]  +
- +
-The ath10k patch flow is this:  +
-          * Patch gets posted to the mailing lists.  +
-          * Kalle immediately applies the patch to pending branch ​for build testing.  +
-          * Kalle waits two business days for patch being under review (unless ​the patch is urgent).  +
-          * If no comments or warnings, Kalle applies the patch to ath-next branch and sends a "​Thanks,​ applied"​ reply.  +
-          * Kalle merges ath-next to master branch immeadiately after the patch is applies.  +
-          * Kalle merges ath-next into wireless-drivers-next roughly every 2-3 weeks  +
-          * David Miller merges wireless-drivers-next into net-next every two weeks or so  +
-          * Linus Torvalds merges net-next into linux.git during [[https://​www.kernel.org/​doc/​Documentation/​development-process/​2.Process|merge window]]  +

-===== Git branches ===== +
- +
-ath.git contains multiple branches: ​+
  
-  * master ​ : The default branch selected when cloning the tree. Everyone working on ath10k (or ath6kl) should use this branch. Follows John Linville'​s wireless-testing tree and contains the latest -rc release from Linus Torvalds + latest wireless code from John + latest ath10k/​ath6kl code from ath-next branch. Usually the branch is rebased after a merge window (after -rc1 is released). Due to unclean history bisect might not work, better to use ath-next for bisecting. ​ 
-  * ath-next ​ : Based on John's wireless-next tree and John will pull from this branch. ath6kl/​ath10k patches are commited to this branch first and then merged to the master branch. For bisect runs it's better to use this branch instead of the master branch. ​ 
-  * pending ​ : Used for building and runtime testing patches under review. Is rebased almost daily and hence commit ids are NOT stable. Use this only if you know what you are doing. ​
