    I'm wondering if it makes sense to do more regular releases of -stable
    so that the patchqueue doesn't build up so much. It's painful
    to sit down and review lots of patches in one sitting.
    Additionally, with lots of change, it's a real pain to figure out
    "which one of the 50 patches that went into the last -stable
    makes my machine not boot" (which I had to do recently).


    Or maybe cc: the reviewer list when patches get added?

    Or maybe both?
