Hi List

Can someone explain to me why the kernel patch submission process
still involves sending patch-sets via email, instead of just saying:
"Here's a new feature that does <something...>. You can fetch it from
<publicly accessible git repo/tag>, which is based on <upstream

Is the issue that people shouldn't be forced to use git? Are the
existing tools for dealing with emailed patches really better and if
so, what are they?
