We thought about doing git initially, still open for that doing do, if it's more preferable by Linus or Andrew. Just thought it's a lot easiler for non git user to pull the patches from a project website.

We should aim to get the big copy-ext3-to-ext4 patch into Linus's tree as
early as possible.

I'm just not sure when to do that. Immediately after 2.6.19-rc1 is
released would be good because it is when every tree (including -mm) is in
its most-synced-up state.

Or you could simply do it _now_. Its new-driver-like, so freeze should
not apply :-).

I agree... though that is contingent on having _some_ ext4 patches reviewed and applied.
