I find it incredible that anyone would think that not having to "worry
about providing valid changelogs" and not "breaking their patches up
into logic pieces" could ever be seen as a good idea. I hope that if
lustre development is excluded from mainline for a time, that we can
still maintain the practices that demonstrably work so well.

For the record: I'm not in favor of ejecting this code from mainline. I
think that the long term result may be that it never comes back, and
will like at least delay the process.
But you must do what you think is best.
