Ah, I'll handle this :)

So, in talking with Andi, we decided that I would just keep the "main"
linux-stable.git tree on kernel.org. When you do a new release, I'll
merge that into the linux-stable.git tree and do the "official" tarball
release with the proper stable kernel signing key.

This should make your life a whole lot easier, just clone the existing
linux-stable.git tree, add your releases to the proper branch, and do a
pull request to me when you have it all ready to go.

It also makes managing things on the kernel.org side easier with
permissions and the like, as sharing a git tree can get messy as we've
seen in the past.

Sound reasonable?

Also, I would like to populate the linux-stable.git tree with the
missing .34-longterm releases that you have already done, care to
provide a git tree that I can pull from for those now?

Oh, you will need a kernel.org account for this, but I'm assuming that
you already have that set up, right? If not, please do that first and
if you have any problems with it, let me know.

thanks,

greg k-h
