Hey David M,

First of sorry for hijacking this thread - but it seemed like the
perfect thread.

David Vrabel raised an interesting point is that we do have an automated
build/test system that finds bugs - and in fact the 3.16-rc1 netfront
and netback bugs were discovered by that (Boris watches them like
hawks and pounces on them immediately).

That being said - all patches that go through the Xen tree (xen/tip.git)
go through that - and also the ones that maintainers do a git pull
on (say for drivers/block/*). But for xen-net* we don't do that since
well.. it hasn't been a problem in the past and we never formulated
a policy for that. (It was easy with Jens' because he likes the
GIT PULL mechanism and we just created a branch in the tree - and I also
managed to cause some embbarasing bugs so to save my face I am now
testing it religiously).

Having said that - how do you handle such situation with sub-maintainers
wanting to do some testing before they are cleared to go your way?
