I've no idea why you're sending me this stuff but please stop - you sent
a similar mail yesterday and I see there were a bunch of similar mails
before you started CCing me into the thread - but sending daily top
posted content free pings is just going to annoy people (or at least
it's annoying me) and sending them to random other maintainers isn't
likely to improve things. This is especially the case when we're more
than half way through the merge window and the code apparently isn't
even in -next yet.

Please stop this and follow Arnd's advice (which you quoted from the
message you're replying to):

If there's some reason to break the process you need to articulate what
it is and give people a chance to respond but that's *very* rare, unless
there is an unusually strong reason people are going to use the normal
development workflow.
