Will do eventually. In the same way that Andrew merges fixes to
patches into the patches before sending to Linus. But in this
case, rather large pieces would vanish in such a process, plus it
would be unfair to expect Andrew to do that work; so it would
be better for you to submit replacements when we're ready.

I guess that depends on whether it's actually receiving any
testing or review while it's in there. I'm happy for it to remain
there for now - and the core of it is going to remain unchanged
or only trivially changed. Really a matter for you to decide
with Andrew: I don't want to pull it out of circulation myself.

I don't see that having a version there in mmotm will slow us
down (what could slow me down more than myself ;-?). But you
and Andrew are free to decide it's counterproductive to keep the
current version there, that's okay by me if you prefer to pull it.
