Now, admittedly, I'm a nobody.

However, when I had a patch series of considerable size, I noted
that Documentation/SubmittingPatches has stated the following
since 2006:

If you cannot condense your patch set into a smaller set
of patches, then only post say 15 or so at a time and wait
for review and integration.


Do not send more than 15 patches at once to the vger
mailing lists!!!

and, accordingly, I went to the trouble of setting up a GitHub
account to host a repo from which I could issue *one* single
PULL request email; I get a little miffed every time my
inbox gets blasted with hundreds of patches when others don't
do similarly.

Surely Microsoft can host a public repo for you (and anybody
else, for that matter).
