+CC The openrisc list

Understood, I don't think we would want that to happen.

Look at the entry today:

M: Jonas Bonn <jonas@xxxxxxxxxxxx>
S: Maintained
T: git git://
F: arch/openrisc/

At the very least, W: and T: are incorrect and need to be updated or removed.
Plus, apparently there is a L:, and "T:";
might be appropriate.

I am aware of this, we have since setup a new website, mailing list and as you have found, git repo. Stefan has been nominated as the maintainer by Jonas on a previous mail thread.

The issue (as we see it) is that neither Stefan or I have signed PGP keys by anyone in the web of trust.

I sent this patch set with a cover lett trying to explain of the situation trying to get some help. Your reponses are very helpful.

Do you think I should just send "git pull" reuqests to Linus with a self signed pgp key and eplaination to see how it goes?

Nope, that won't work. Linus will not accept pull requests without signed key,
or at least I would be very surprised if he does. You'll have to get your key
signed. I understand that may be tricky, with you being in Japan (if that is
you ;-), but we can't help it.



I have a change as following in my backlog, as follows:
