every single architecture has their own development tree. the pa project
has not been running as long as the other ports, and has a large amount of
development going on. i count 28 commits for april (so far), 75 commits
for march, 187 for february and 112 for january (to the kernel tree, other
parts of the port also have commit messages). linus would go insane if
we sent him every single one of those patches individually. and we'd
go insane trying to keep up with what he'd taken and what he'd dropped.

until you've actually tried doing this, please don't attempt to criticise.
