Subject: [PATCH 2/2] Documentation/process/maintainer-pgp-guide: Replace broken link to PGP path finder
Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2021 09:50:30 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210812095030.4704-2-sj38.park@gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210812095030.4704-1-sj38.park@gmail.com>

From: SeongJae Park <sjpark@amazon.de>

This commit replaces it with other available tools.
