Introduce two openSUSE kernel repositories. Where are they and the difference.
- How to use kernel-source git. The folders in kernek-source, config files...
For openSUSE kernel patch development, how to use scripts in kernel-source. Introduce config files for openSUSE kernel.
- How to contribute patch to openSUSE kernel.
Produce a kernel patch that it includes openSUSE tags, then send your patch to openSUSE kernel mail address for contribution.
