So maybe it just doesn't need a maintainer, and maybe those the owner
of the bridge driver should be responsible for choosing the tree which
it's merged through along with updates. That's how dw-hdmi has been
managed on the whole.

It also means that the bridge driver maintainer is able to test changes
to the bridge driver, rather than having some over-arching bridge
subdirectory maintainer who doesn't have a clue whether the changes
work on the hardware.

IMHO, having bridge driver authors/maintainers look after their own
code has many advantages.
The author just send me a pull request with acks from a git tree
that hopefully both people agreed and tested from. No need to
send this via another maintainer layer.


Wow, thanks all ! such cool news :-D I'll prepare my pull request soon
