Regression Testing

Would it be valuable to add a section or article on doing kernel regression testing using git? Ideally, such an article would cover everything from git clone to the bug-report itself.

Given that we are a highly up to date release, we do live on the edge of new commits. It seems likely that we are some of the first in the "general" public that encounter regressions and I'd like to encourage people to track down these issues in a decent manner.--stefanwilkens (talk) 08:31, 3 October 2012 (UTC)

This sounds like a good idea, please go on and try to interlink the new article with the others it's related with. In general, keep Help:Style#Hypertext metaphor in mind ;) -- Kynikos (talk) 13:56, 3 October 2012 (UTC)
