Sir, I got to know about the Linux Kernel: Mining for Maintainers project from the LFX Mentorship Program website. I am really excited about the project. I have applied for the project on the website. Now, I am writing this email to you regarding the mentee tasks.

Please always CC linux-kernel-mentees at lists.linuxfoundation.org.
Thanks for your interest.
For the mentee selection, please work on the following exercise:
First, download the kernel git repository and compile the kernel with
the x86-defconfig build configuration.
There is a file called MAINTAINERS in the root directory of the git
repository. Read the introduction at the beginning of the MAINTAINERS
file and understand the content in the file and its organisation.
Explain in your words: What is stored in the MAINTAINERS file?
Now, search for specific MAINTAINER entries; Please answer: Who are
the maintainers and reviewers of the following sections?
ACPI PMIC DRIVERS
ADF7242 IEEE 802.15.4 RADIO DRIVER
AFFS FILE SYSTEM
DOCUMENTATION REPORTING ISSUES
MEDIA INPUT INFRASTRUCTURE (V4L/DVB)
P54 WIRELESS DRIVER
SOUND - DMAENGINE HELPERS
USB "USBNET" DRIVER FRAMEWORK
VIRTIO FILE SYSTEM
Please let me know about your answers and always send your responses
to the linux-kernel-mentees mailing list.
After that first exercise, exercises 2 and 3 will follow.
