Something I think we'll miss is in the long run, being able
to just push all patches for Linus to a tree and then forget about
that tree until Linus pulled from it was invaluable.. the fact that
this tree was online the whole time and you didn't queue up huge mails
for Linus's INBOX to be missed, meant a lot to me compared to pre-bk

Maybe now that has been 'pimped out' we could set some sort
of system up where maintainers can drop a big load of patchsets or
even one big patch into some sort of public area and say this is my
diffs for Linus for his next pull and let Linus pull it at his
lesuire... some kinda rsync'y type thing comes to mind ...

so I can mail Linus and say hey Linus please grab
rsync:// and you grab everything
in there and I get notified perhaps or just a log like the bkbits
stats page, and Andrew can grab the patchsets the same as he does for
bk-drm now ... and I can have airlied/drm-2.6 where I can queue stuff
for -mm then just re-generate the patches for drm-linus later on..
