Just to let you know, your requests will be ignored, as Jon stated.

That is not how Linux kernel development works. Our development process
is _very_ well documented. If you don't follow it, don't expect to get
your patches accepted, it's that simple. You aren't special here.

That has nothing to do with kernel.org. Actually none of these do, but
this one really doesn't.

Talk to the vger.kernel.org postmasters about this, it is between you
and them, and has nothing to do with the kernel.org group.

Again, contact the well documented postmaster address for this.
