    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

    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 If/when the time comes I'll
    send it on to If that person is redirecting his email to then he presumably still
    won't receive it. We'll work it out at that time ;)
