Something that is confusing for kernel developers is that the sparse wiki
(https://sparse.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Main_Page) refers kernel developers
to an outdated sparse tree. Should something be done about this inconsistency?
Should the sparse wiki point at one of Luc's sparse trees or should perhaps
Luc be granted access to the tree that wiki points at
(https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/devel/sparse/sparse.git)?

Thanks,

Bart.
