KS2009: LKML volume and related issues

I think one problem with the -tip tree is that there are a number of subsystems maintained in the same tree. This means that -tip gets blamed for as many bugs as the average 5 major trees, and gets blamed for bugs in 5 times as many areas as any other major tree.

I think if Ingo ran a tree per subsystem he maintains, plus a -tip that rolls them up (or ditched it in favor of -next or kept the roll-up private to his test infrastructure), it wouldn't attract so much blame and annoyance. In fact, nothing at all seems to get into mainline through a pull that isn't more specific than "-tip", so if people are complaining generically about "-tip", Ingo isn't presenting things well.
