I also have no real problem sending pull requests to RMK instead of
Linus, as long as it isn't a pain. Linus gives clear directions as to
how his tree works, and when he expects what kinds of pull requests.
Weird web-based patch tracking systems are a pain. Pull requests from
git with a fairly easy way to know when they've been pulled are not.

I also find that http://ftp.arm.linux.org.uk/ is frequently
inaccessable, and usually slow.

As it stands, so far, it's been a lot less work for me to send directly
to Linus, and resolve the issues that come up when they do.
