I don't know who you were discussing this with...
You should CC the 0th patch to all the mailinglists. That much is a
For the rest, Julia's position is the more conservative one. I was in
a conversation in RL and they were like, "CC everyone for all the
patches". It depends on the context, of course. If the patches are
dependent on each other then you *have* to CC everyone for everything.
If we really have other clear rules, then it should be encoded into
get_maintainer.pl so that it's automatic.
My other question is why do the linux-arm-kernel@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
people feel like they need to be CC'd about every driver??? I always
remove them from the CC list unless it's an arch/arm issue.
