I disagree, jitterbug is cool, but it doesn't handle all the points Rik have
asked for. Especially point 3 : check that each patch apply and if not, send
a mail to the maintainer. Or points 4,5, ...

It shouldn't be difficult to write such a system, though. The problem is :
would that kind of system be used. I don't even ask about Linus : I know he
won't.


What about Marcelo, Alan and the main-kernel-part maintainers ?


Marcello, Alan, tell us you would use such a system, and I'm sure people
would try to setup something.
Too much people have actually spent time on developping tools especially for
the linux kernel. Tell us you'll use such a system, and we'll write/hack it.
You remember Linus saying he'll integrate kbuild and cml2 between 2.5.1 and
2.5.2 ? Do you still believe this ? I don't.

And, btw, jitterbug is too big for Linus. He's afraid of too complex system.
IMHO he could consider using a small&simple tool that fit exactly his view of
what kernel development is.
That is : how it's done today, but automaticated.
"he could". But how to know ? no way, no way.

Thomas
