Right, so the infrastructure is in place to support pulling patches via email
by simply sending the line "get linux-kernel patch-220.127.116.11.bz2" in
the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
All that is needed now is to populate those dirs.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
