This brings up a subject that could be good to discuss at KS: Do you
want a backup to share your workload and for hand-off at times like
this?

You've been carrying the load of linux-next alone for years now, and
having someone that can take over every now and then seems like a good
idea. You've been doing an outstanding job but everybody need downtime
sometimes.

Linux-next is incredibly valuable for _so_ many of us, and a big part
of the value is in the continuous frequent releases that allows us to
catch issues quickly when they are staged, and keep bisectability as
high as possible. It also helps us discover early on when someone is
merging code through a maintainer they shouldn't (due to conflicts).
It will be very much missed during your well-deserved vacation.
