Kernel-Janitor patchsets
Draft version 1

1. KJ patchsets

The Kernel Janitors (KJ) project reviews patches, comments on them, screens
and/or merges them, and creates patchsets that contain them. These patchsets
are available for anyone to download and use.

Patches should be sent to ""
for review. Randy Dunlap ( will compile-test
them and merge them into the -kj patchset if they pass review.

2. KJ patchset review and approvals

A patch must be approved by at least two (2) KJ project developers and
receive no vetoes (rejects) before it is added to the -kj patchset.

3. KJ patch forwarding
After a patch has been in the -kj patchset for 1 week (without problems) or
on request from another Linux tree maintainer, it will be forwarded to the
current Linux tree maintainer (Linus, Andrew, Marcelo, etc.) for merging.
