WTF? Wow, there really *is* an FAQ: https://lwn.net/Articles/561669/

DaveM is the best maintainer I've ever known, but I abhor the idea that
every subsystem has its own incompatible variant on workflow and style.

Asking people to express 'CC: stable' in words is error-prone; if Dave
wants to filter it, he's quite capable.

Rusty.
