Automation around dynamic info (lines of code, core utils, core contributors)
Our book, in several places, makes reference to information that can quickly get out of date:
- lists of libraries and packages
- lists of contributors
- counting the lines of code in the kernel :-)
- packages that do not share our MIT X11-style license
We should consider some lightweight automation around checking if this info is up to date, and/or updating it directly.
Ideally we drive these checks from CI.
