Re: Coordinating stable reviews

Pavel Machek


We don't really need commit messages for this. Actually, we don't
really need to keep history, either. It would be good if system could
be controlled from command line for easy scripting.

Any ideas what kind of service could be used for this?
I guess I should mention alternate possibilities. We could try to
somehow "hash" the commits... Perhaps I'd review all the patches where
upstream sha begins with 0-6. But patches in -stable often come in
series that depend on each other, and it would be good if single
person reviewed them.

We could also split based on first character of subject, or on
subsystem patch touches. I guess that would have other disadvantages
like uneven distribution of work when big ammount of btrfs fixes hits
the -stable.
