Hi all,

I lately did not have enough time to dedicate to the Linux FPGA
subsystem, concerns were raised around bus-factor and all.

Looking at my day-job I don't see this getting better in the short-term
so I've decided to get a conversation going on how to structure this
better for the benefit of the Linux FPGA subsystem.

Maybe a maintainer team approach would address the bus factor and
workload concerns better?

In terms of people I was thinking about:

Hao has done a great job at keeping the DFL part of things going, so I
think he'd be a great choice.

Yilun has been very helpful with reviews and I think he'd be a good
pick, too.

In terms of how to structure this: I'm not sure just yet, open to input.

How do other multi-maintainer subsystems operate? Ideas? Suggestions?

Let me know what you think,

Moritz

It's my pleasure for the nomination and yes I'd like to be one of the
maintainer team, to be more helpful.

Thanks,
Yilun

There's lots of different ways they work, depends on what works best for
you all.

Some take turns on a weekly basis to commit patches to the tree.  Some
require multiple acks/reviews by the others before they are allowed to
merge to their tree.  Some just do what they can and merge what they
want :)

So it's all up to you all as to what you all find works best.  I'll
gladly take patches from whatever you all determine to do.

thanks,

greg k-h

Great, thanks for helping out. I'll look into setting up a shared
repository in the next couple of days.

In the meantime try getting a kernel.org account setup following the
instructions here: https://korg.docs.kernel.org/accounts.html

I don't remember if you have to be listed as M: entry in MAINTAINERS for
the account to get approved. In any case I'll send out a patch in a bit.

- Moritz

Hi Moritz,

Me too, it's really a great pleasure. Thanks a lot for giving me this
opportunity, I hope I can do more contributions.

Thanks
