    I disagree -- Andrew Morton and Al Viro don't sent patches to Linus via
    BK, AFAIK, and their patches are getting in.

    Another example, Jean Tourrhes (sp?), the wireless and IrDA guy. I have
    agreed to become his "patch penguin", which IMHO has already translated
    into less resends for Jean through my and Linus's use of BK. He sends
    GNU patches, so his process is unchanged, he only sees patches _not_
    getting dropped[1].

    And a further counter-example (to my shame), Anton A. sent me a BK patch
    during Linus's vacation, and I have not yet sent it forward, showing
    that BK doesn't necessarily imply auto-approval.


    [1] of course there is often a Garzik-delay :) but I don't drop patches
