    The reasons why I for one do not plan to use git are:

    - disk space
    - bandwidth (rsync traffic has to go through our masquerader, and the
    amount of traffic through the masquerader I'm allowed to
    generate is limited)
    - I do not need Linus' tree for anything.
    I'm working against -mm because it's further in development.

    Having said this, Andrew might perhaps be able to _additionally_ provide
    -mm patches without linus.patch for the convenience of git users.
