Linux developers often ask people to split large patches into many (sometimes many, many) small patches that can be merged incrementally. Developers can more easily review and accept/reject small patches. In comparison, PostgreSQL sounds like it uses a very "Big Bang" integration process compared to Linux's "Katamari Damacy" development process. :)
