I'm not going to call people out publically since we don't have a firm
policy with regard to how patches are handled...yet.  But there are
other git trees right now which don't do things the way the kernel is
dealing with its patches.  There's going to need to be some care with
regard to making sure the correct patch hygiene is encouraged(its
difficult to say enforced since I doubt it could be) as packages
transition to an advanced vcs setup.  At a minimum we'll need someone
who understand what the best practices are to help write a migration
document that covers making small patchsets.
