Our views differ then.

It is unreasonable to assume, that someone who is listed via
Tested-By: in a random patch is able to review another patch to the same
file. More likely will he be annoyed, because he see's a patch, dig's
in and then thinks: "wtf? why were i cc'ed on this. I don't know this
code. I don't have time for this!"

Thats just broken.

cheers,
Flo
