Overall, looks good. I would make these changes to the diagram:

-- remove wireless-testing -> wireless-next-2.6 arrow

-- add me -> wireless-next-2.6 arrow

-- add wireless-2.6 -> wireless-testing arrow

-- add wireless-next-2.6 -> wireless-testing arrow

This would reflect that patches go into wireless-2.6 and
wireless-next-2.6, then are pulled to wireless-testing. A few patches
may go to wireless-testing directly, but they will eventually be
reverted and possibly replaced with a patch in one of the other trees
(and subsequently pulled back into wireless-testing). Nothing pulls
from wireless-testing (except developers).

Thanks for the doc! :-)
