    I do not think this will happen for a "as-warning-classified" patch.
    As far as I understood from a previous asking to accept a patch
    through Stephen, he answered me that he is expecting that patches for
    sub-trees shall be pushed by the sub-maintainer(s).
    This is surely the optimal way.

    There is a nice, informative interview with Stephen on topic of
    linux-next [1] (working together with submaintainers etc.).

    Unfortunately, it will sometimes happen that more than one people will
    notice or send a patch to the same issue.
    So, yeah a bit waste of time someone could think.
    Thus, it is always good to check the MLs first :-).

    But which MLs?
    It's a pity people don't use linux-next ML for l-n releated stuff.
    As a consequence, I subscribed a few hours ago to linux-next ML [2]
    and will post primarily there (LKML should IMHO not be the 1st place
    for such issues, but a CC is OK).

    The subjects of Emails should be very clear on what type of issue.
    For example, breakage(s) shoul be clearly expressed.
    Also, I miss often against WTF version of linux-next ppl send patches.
    Hey, hello, each l-n version has a localversion-next file, didn't see :-)?
    A good subject:
    "Re: linux-next: Tree for December 20 (BROKEN iwlwifi)" or
    "linux-next: next-20101220 (BROKEN iwlwifi)"

    That a GIT tree is compile-able is a (maybe *the*) first step to QA,
    but QA is a big playground.

    Hmm, I have some ideas in my big suitcase...
    The wiki [1] needs partly a refresh...
    An IRC-channel #linux-next would be fine...
    Lemme re-think and write them down.

    - Sedat -

    P.S.: Personally, I have seen some patches from Randy and others which
    were still not applied.
