I claim that we'd have a much higher quality kernel if we had a
single central mailing list instead of these elitist fractured
lists. Every kernel topic would have global visibility, and it
would be trivially easy to get the interest of other people, across

If it's not reported on linux-scsi, there's a significant chance of
us missing the bug report. The fact that some people notice bugs
go past on LKML and forward them to linux-scsi is a happy accident
and not necessarily something to rely on.
LKML has 10-20x the traffic of linux-scsi and a much smaller signal
to noise ratio. Having a specialist list where all the experts in
the field hang out actually enhances our ability to fix bugs.
