I think the idea was not that you'd get *more* reviews, but that there would be a group of volunteers doing reviews to ensure that they arrive fast. Students should have feedback within 1-2 days of the series being posted. The other advantages are that it provides a set of fresh eyes, and takes load off Junio. I'm not even sure how official we have to make this. In Thomas Gummerer's case, Michael stepped up with reviews when I couldn't. So maybe it'll again "just work out". But I would like to take this role, and leave the "social" mentoring to others. -- Thomas Rast t...@thomasrast.ch -- 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
