The exception was for massive changes, theses are not massive changes, they are no-brainer fixes that would possibly fix regressions. > If we didn't, then a 10-patch series at this point in the cycle is > way too late for me to be comfortable taking.

No, I sent *four* patches for 'master', which I eventually increased to ten, because the increased ones are all simple cleanups. And the fixes are obvious and can't possibly introduce regressions, specially since the important change re-introduces the same behavior we had in v1.8.2. The 47 patches I sent are for 'next', and are clearly marked as so. I included the same 10 fixes I sent for 'master', because they never landed on master. > People make mistakes and the initial submission being buggy is *not* > a problem per-se, but what quality assurance do the 10-patch and/or > the follow up 47-patch series have over these 21 patches to assure > us that they do not introduce more problems, when we are this close > to the final, way less than the 3 weeks we had?

I am going to go one by one to show you the patches make sense for 'master'. -- Felipe Contreras -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
