Help Wanted: Be Greg KH's Linux Kernel Release/ Sanity Checker

I'm looking for someone to help me out with the stable Linux kernel release process. Right now I'm drowning in trees and patches, and could use some one to help me sanity-check the releases I'm doing. Specifically, I'm looking for someone to help with: test boot the -rc stable kernels to make sure I didn't do anything foolish. dig through the Linux kernel distro trees and send me the git commit ids, or the backported patches, of things they are shipping that are not in the stable and longterm kernel releases. do code review of the patches going into the stable releases. If you can help out with this, I'd really appreciate it. Note,...

Role of a Linux Kernel Maintainer

At LinuxCon Japan a few weeks ago I gave a talk entitled, "Linux Kernel Maintainers, What they do and how you can help them." The video of the talk is now online here if you want to see what I said, and the full slides, and text of what I said can be found in the presentation's repository. If you have ever wondered why a maintainer of an open source project could be a bit grumpy about anything you have sent them, I strongly suggest you go read the notes I wrote for that talk, or the slides, which includes all speaker notes. Also, if you ever want to know what to do, in order to get your patches accepted, please go read the slides, I'm not going to repeat the information here. Well, with one exception. But first, it seems that this talk has kicked off a bunch of discussion. First off was Jake Edge's excellent summary of the talk on lwn.net, which kicked off a bunch of comments by people who didn't seem to have read the slides, or seen the talk, but it sparked a bunch of interest anyway, as everyone likes watching when people argue. Then Jon Corbet weighed in on the topic of mocking which...
