Mmmm. I do agree actually with Russ about this more than I do with
Sean. I agree that for many packages keeping a rebasing patch stack
is very desirable. Where I disagree with Russ is how we should store
and exchange that patch stack. I think we should do that by suitable
git trickery rather than by exporting and reimporting as patches.

We have been occasionally using
email@example.com for development type
discussions. There isn't really a user-focused list. I'm happy to
have the conversation here if others don't mind.
Ian Jackson <firstname.lastname@example.org> These opinions are my own.
If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
