The development community has put a lot of work into the kernel's documentation directory in recent years, with visible results. But the kernel's documentation still falls far short of the standard set by many other projects, and there is a great deal of "tribal knowledge" in our community that is not set down. In this talk, the kernel documentation maintainer will look at the successes and failures of the work so far, but will focus on what our documentation should be and what we can do to get it there.
