    still, he still has to "review the reviews". i don't understand the wisdom behind that.

    You should do a bit of research before trying to criticize something and throw in your two cents.

    Do you really think Linus is reviewing millions of lines of code by himself? He just has the final say when it comes to merging branches that have already gone through the hierarchy of the review/development process.

    Each kernel component has a lieutenant maintaining it, and then responsibility is delegated down from there. They're the ones who send in pull requests to Linus.

    He has a very high-level view of the development, and his decisions are mostly based on whether a branch has become stable enough to be merged in the current window, or if it will have to wait another cycle (or more).

    Looks like Linus will reject and move it to 3.6.
