Can we discuss following process patch:
Mainly the issue is how to approach a patch that effects other parts of the
DPDK, who should update those dependent parts, the initiator of the feature or
the maintainer of those parts?
Two opposed arguments on issue:
- If initiator doesn't fix the dependent code, somebody needs to follow the
dependent parts to do the work, which is a maintenance cost keep growing by
- If initiator has to do the all work, this is too much work for initiator and
may prevent improvements because of too much work, or because of missing
knowledge in dependent parts.
