Nah, by "overdose" I simply mean: I ate so many that I got tired of them, and don't want to eat any more. The way you might overdose on watching TV.

Interesting. If asciidoc is a dead-end for the kernel folks, we might be also better off migrating to RST in the Git land.
 
+Jonathan Corbet recommends sphinx here: http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=145540040708557&w=2.
I have been very pleased with what I have seen so far done in sphinx - and using some kind of markdown is much better than any XML stuff.

I had a patch once that converted some of the kbuild documentation to asciidoc - but the unstability of the tool back then made this a not so good choice.
I look forward to see where this initiative ends.

Browsing http://static.lwn.net/kerneldoc/ does not scare me away but some people are quite religous (any not very constructive) when it comes to tool dependencies - even for stuff like documentation.

I'd be happy to get rid of the docbook toolchain... Any tool that produces groff and html directly should be more efficient. Playing around with sphinx a bit looks quite promising.

Interestingly, there's a ton of tools that converts anything to asciidoc (and "everything "else). Still have to find one that goes the other way (without doing asciidoc -> docbook first). I guess we'd have to do manual fine-tuning anyways, and our asciidoc markup should render (!) itself to some sed-ing.

Impressed by cardboard (in YouTube App).

I cannot exactly say it was like being there, but considering that I'm not likely to visit the place any time soon, the "experience" is a vast improvement over traditional video.

It is amazing that you can take video like this with a tiny handheld device.

"Gender Bias in Open Source: Pull Request
Acceptance of Women Versus Men" https://peerj.com/preprints/1733v1.pdf is an interesting study. In short, more of your GitHub pull requests are accepted in an open source settings for a project insider, if you are a female, rather than a male.

I have to wonder what they counted, though. If I ask a change to be pulled, and reviewers respond with suggestions for improvement, I could revise the pull request in place, or I can say "OK, this new pull request is a complete rewrite of that old one that I abandoned". When the result gets accepted, did I score 100% in the former case and 50% in the latter?

By the way, in the Git project, I do not even have the luxury of showing any gender bias. If I declared that I'd take patches only from "tall and tan and young and lovely" from now on, the project would immediately grind to a halt.

Not that I'd want to make such a declaration, but it is sad not to even have that choice ;-)
Women's contributions to open source are more likely to be accepted than men's.

+Lilian Moraru  Totally agree, and that goes towards the (I think) true intention of +Junio C Hamano  which is....theres lots of females coding at high standars and succesfully nowadays, Which is a significant data, and believe me ( Im on the education side), is something that still is not happening in other landscapes of media industry, and we still triying to figure out how to engage more females ie in just sound engineer, BUT.....is already happening in Open Source environtments, which means that the Open Source Community of Practice, has developed artifacs and models that should be expanded and consider by the communities working in all those "bell concepts" like Equality , diversity, gender inclusion etc.

Like Lilian says, in Git community of practice it has gone so far that truly....nobody cares, I wish it was the same in many areas were females are still not present or oppressed by many factors.
