Hi us,
     I saw MAINTAINERS these days. I find we should program a script(shell) for checking if a maintainer added himself in correct position. 
     Because the MAINTAINERS is in alphabetical order and it has lots of maintainers now.
     I just want to ask if anyone is doing this work. If it has  been began i will do other things about kernel. If not, i will program this script(shell) for us.

     Thanks.
     Best Regards.
     Harry Wei.

Why not just modify the 'scripts/get_maintainers.pl' tool to do this?

thanks,

surely, you mean hooking it into 'scripts/checkpatch.pl' ?

No, I hadn't ment that, as I figured get_maintainers.pl already parsed
the MAINTAINERS file, so it might be easier to do it there.

But you are probably right, it's only an issue when you add a
MAINTAINERS entry, so it should go into that script.

Although I'm really loath to add any more to that script, it's slow
enough as it is on large patches :(

thanks,

perl -e '$last = "0"; while (<>) { @F = split(/:/); if ($begin) { if (!/^\s*$/ && length($F[0]) > 1) { unless ($last le $_) { print "header wrongly sorted! ($_)\n"; $err =1; } $last = $_; }}; $begin = 1 if ( $F[0] =~ /\t\t-----------------------------------$/);} exit(1) if ($err); ' < MAINTAINERS

Hi florian,
   Thanks to your reply ;)

   It can only check if the maintainers in the alphabetical order when maintainer add himself in it.

  Thanks, i will remember this rule. Keep the cc list :)
