Unless I missed it, I've not heard back from you on this. I'd like to get
this stuff pulled in for 5.5 if possible... would you object if I were to
apply your patches, then tack on a move over to the process guide?
Sorry for the delay.
Yes, the process book is a better location now that this information
is focused on being supplemental guidelines for submitters rather than
a "how to maintain X subsystem" guide.
I do want to respin this without the Coding Style addendum to address
the specific feedback there, but other than that I'm happy to see this
