    "USB Type C Port Management is no longer in stading. " Did you mean standing?

    Looks like 4.15 will be a great xmas present for us all.

          Next weekend. ~26th November. Might be off by a few days though since Torvalds is traveling for US holiday.

            I wonder how many of those lines are comments?

            Why do I ask?

            Uncommented code is practically unmaintainable. Poorly commented code is not much better than uncommented code. Well commented code is theoretically "self documenting", but that is no excuse to not create actual documentation that is kept separate from the code, or comments that can be easily excised from the code since I have known a programmer or two that liked to "write books" in their code comments.

              About 20K last time I looked (116K SLOC code, 20K comments, 20K whitespace).

                comments have little to do with code maintainability. compilers don't read comments. people often too btw

                  I really hope compilers aren't maintaining code now, or I'm going to be out of a job.

                    compilers produce executables and they will ignore everything you write in comments. all important things you have to write in code. compiler can't forget to read and abide code, you can't say same thing about people and comments
