    gack, this isn't working out very well.

    Is everyone OK with the concept and execution? We think this is ready
    and desirable to merge?

    I think I'd like this to sit in my tree for a while so I can have a
    play with it - I'm a major customer!

    The two problematic patches are the ones which make largish changes to
    the MAINTAINERS file, yes? One way to handle those is as a two-pass
    thing: I merge and maintain it as much as I can, but as people make
    additional changes and as the fixups get out of hand, the patch will
    end up only being 90% complete. So we'll need to do a later second
    pass to fix up the stragglers.

    Will that be OK? Will the tool still work OK is MAITNAINERS is a bit
    wrong?

    Is the tool capable of detecting misformatted MAINTAINERS entries? If
    so, that would help long-term maintenance a lot.

    I never have seen [patch 2/8] because the linux-foundation mail server
    thinks it's spam. So if all the above looks OK then please resend
    everything (yet again) to akpm@kernel.org. If/when the time comes I'll
    send it on to torvalds@kernel.org. If that person is redirecting his
    kernel.org email to linux-foundation.org then he presumably still
    won't receive it. We'll work it out at that time ;)

    Thanks.
