0001 .. The Linux Kernel documentation master file, created by
0002    sphinx-quickstart on Fri Feb 12 13:51:46 2016.
0003    You can adapt this file completely to your liking, but it should at least
0004    contain the root `toctree` directive.

0006 Welcome to The Linux Kernel's documentation
0007 ===========================================
0008 
0009 This is the top level of the kernel's documentation tree.  Kernel
0010 documentation, like the kernel itself, is very much a work in progress;
0011 that is especially true as we work to integrate our many scattered
0012 documents into a coherent whole.  Please note that improvements to the
0013 documentation are welcome; join the linux-doc list at vger.kernel.org if
0014 you want to help out.

0016 User-oriented documentation
0017 ---------------------------
0018 
0019 The following manuals are written for *users* of the kernel — those who are
0020 trying to get it to work optimally on a given system.

0022 .. toctree::
0023    :maxdepth: 2

0025    admin-guide/index
0026 
0027 Introduction to kernel development
0028 ----------------------------------
0029 
0030 These manuals contain overall information about how to develop the kernel.
0031 The kernel community is quite large, with thousands of developers
0032 contributing over the course of a year.  As with any large community,
0033 knowing how things are done will make the process of getting your changes
0034 merged much easier.

0040    dev-tools/index
0041    doc-guide/index
0042 
0043 Kernel API documentation
0044 ------------------------
0045 
0046 These books get into the details of how specific kernel subsystems work
0047 from the point of view of a kernel developer.  Much of the information here
0048 is taken directly from the kernel source, with supplemental material added
0049 as needed (or at least as we managed to add it — probably *not* all that is
0050 needed).
