Greg KH offered a short "kernel maintainer's HOWTO for quilt and -mm", offering instructions on how one can utilize quilt to create patchsets intended to be merged into Andrew Morton [interview]'s -mm tree [story]. He begins:
"So, You're a kernel maintainer faced with the fact that you are having people send you loads of patches, but don't know how to stage them in a fashion that others can see what you have and have not accepted. You also want to have them show up in the -mm releases and need to provide some hint as to the order in which they should be applied. This small document and script will provide one solution to this."
