SubjectRe: Proposal: Linux Kernel Patch Management System
   Date: 	Wed, 13 Sep 2000 02:27:07 -0700
From: "David S. Miller" <davem@redhat.com>

rsync torvalds@penguin.transmeta.com:/home/torvalds/src/linux \
ftp.kernel.org:/pub/linux/kernel/LIVE/linux

would be the real helper for people like me whose only real issue
now is bothering Linus all the time to make pre-patches so I can send
him known clean diffs.

This is orthogonal to the patch management system, but I agree this
would be highly useful. Would Linus be willing to have an hourly cron
job that rsync'ed his live kernel sources to ftp.kernel.org? (I suspect
a number of patch submitters would then have rsync jobs that would sync
from kernel.org to their local directories. I know I would.)

It would certainly make it easier to send clean patches to Linus.
