I'm wondering if it makes sense to do more regular releases of -stable
so that the patchqueue doesn't build up so much. It's painful
to sit down and review lots of patches in one sitting.
Additionally, with lots of change, it's a real pain to figure out
"which one of the 50 patches that went into the last -stable
makes my machine not boot" (which I had to do recently).

Or maybe cc: the reviewer list when patches get added?

Or maybe both?
