Yes, I know what you mean. But the whole concept of having custodians
with separate responsibilities kind of requires orthogonality.
I have to admit that I don't have experience dealing with such
situations, either. So what I'm trying to do is (once more) to follow
the Linux model. When submitting support for a new board (which is a
pretty standard task) I would like to be able to submit a single
patch to one mailing list myself. Neverless you have to split it up
into pieces for, say, linuxppc-dev, lmsensors, mtd, linuxusb, and who
knows what else - because responsibilities for these separate parts
are distributed. I don't like this myself from the submitter's point
of view, but from the maintainer's/custodian's point of view it makes
a lot sense.
