You're not adding a file, you're renaming an existing file; say that.

This doc_make.log file certainly doesn't belong here; please look
carefully at your patches before sending them.

Is there a reason you changed the name (io-mapping to io_mapping)?  If so,
you should explain it.

Finally, this document really doesn't belong in the top level.  Please
