Mailing List Etiquette

Many people reading the mailing lists get irritated about top posting, and long unwrapped lines. So please configure your mailer accordingly.

For posting patches, please post one patch per mail, and make sure the patch subject and description are suitable for applying as they are without editing. To see how your patch looks applied in git, you can test apply it with git am /path/to/the/patch.

Any patches intended for the Linux merge window should be sent by -rc6. A large chunk of the patches can be sent as fixes during the -rc cycle. For fixes, please have keyword fix in the subject of the message.
