CC: to the batman list should now work for you. Your email address has been listed as O.K. to accept. There is an ongoing discussion about an open list and fighting SPAM etc.
But first off, what is keeping this code from being added to the "main" portion of the kernel tree? Have you submitted it for inclusion there already? If so, what was the response? If not, why not?
I'm reasonably new to the project so don't know the history too well. I get the impression the code has not been sent to lkml or linux-net list. There seems to be a perception within the developers that getting code into mainline is difficult, so why bother when it has been going O.K. out of mainline. I think you saying it could go into staging right now has taken quite a few people by surprise.
Is staging the right way to do this? Is posting to say linux-net better for this sort of code?
Sound good? If so, send me some patches!
Assuming we do go via staging, do you want one jumbo patch, 6500 lines of code, or should i break it up into smaller chunks?
