Dear Qlogic driver maintainers, dear Nilesh, deat Shahed, dear Manish,


during an unrelated kernel clean-up task, I noticed some LICENSE files for 
the qlogic drivers hanging around in Documentation.

Thomas Gleixner has provided you a patch series in June 2019 to pick up or 
simply add a Reviewed-by tag here:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-spdx/20190606205526.447558989@linutronix.de

As it seems from the public mailing list archive, you have never responded 
to Thomas' request. If you could indicate that the change is fine for you,
I am happy to rebase the patch series to the current next tree, so that 
Thomas can pick that up and let it travel through the spdx tree to Linus 
for the next release.

See first reminder here:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-spdx/alpine.DEB.2.21.2006300644130.4919@felia/

Just to let you know, I will send a third reminder in a few months, and 
if there is no response to that, I will just send a patch to mark those 
drivers where QLogic-Storage-Upstream@qlogic.com or 
GR-Linux-NIC-Dev@marvell.com are maintainers as Orphaned, just to keep 
MAINTAINERS reflect the actual state.


Best regards,

Lukas

This is why I hate having "group aliases" as maintainers.  It doesn't
work as we never know who "really" is maintaining the code, and there is
no accountability.

Given the length of a lack of response so far, I would suggest just
marking it orphaned now.  If someone wants to step up in the future to
maintain it, great, but it needs to be a person, not an email alias.

thanks,

Lukas,

We have taken note of the comments and seeking opinion from our internal Legal team and will revert accordingly.

Thanks,

Hi Lukas!

Sorry for the delay, my team is still responsible for maintenance of these ethernet drivers: qla3xxx and qlcnic.

The changes are quite natural, we already did similar spdx fixes on our current family of qed* drivers.

So here is my ACK for changes of these drivers license files.

> networking/device_drivers/qlogic/LICENSE.qla3xxx |   46 ---
> networking/device_drivers/qlogic/LICENSE.qlcnic  |  288 ----------------------

Do you want me to also reply to that original thread from Thomas?

Thanks,
   Igor

Lukas, Thomas,

We have got green signal from our internal legal and would like to give ACK for qla2xxx and qla4xxx driver license conversion.

Nilesh, that is great!

In the meantime, I have rebased Thomas' patchset from 2019 to v5.9-rc4 
here:

https://lore.kernel.org/linux-spdx/20200908123451.7215-1-lukas.bulwahn@gmail.com/

Nilesh, can you ack all those patches in that patchset, please?

And quickly answer if you pick up those patches or if they shall travel 
through the spdx tree.

Thanks,

Lukas
