Absolutely agreed.

The rule of sending out patches and collecting feedback for a week at
least is not really being respected, from my experience. Shit gets
blasted out at the highest rate possible. Maybe lkml should have a
git-send-email throttle.

And I have the sneaking impression that a lot of people have not really
understood what merge window means.
