Yesterday evening i sent an email to Greg KH about getting batman into
mainline via staging. I CCed the list. Since i used an account which is
not subscribed, i got a bounce:
You are not allowed to post to this mailing list, and your message

This is contrary to what the wiki says:
You can subscribe to our Mailing List here. You can also send an
E-Mail without subscription to b.a.t.m.a.n@…, but note that this

Greg KH reply also bounced, and he was not so happy about that.
If we want to receive comments from the kernel experts, we are
probably going to need an open list.
I can think of two options:
1) Make the batman list open for none subscribers to post to.
2) Create a batman-adv list which is open and we use that for all
discussion about kernel work.
As a side issue, i'm not sure batman-adv is the right name for
mainline. In the context of the batman project, it makes sense, but
from the perspective of mainline, this is the first version of batman,
and maybe we cannot justify the advanced.
