Break up your changes - how to withdraw the whole task
February 09, 2011 04:44AM
When reading e.g. the following documentation it's clear one should break up ones changes to facilitate review and acceptance by the community.
Documentation/HOWTO, "Break up your changes"
[kernelnewbies.org]

However, if one's change is split into several patches and possibly different kernel releases, how do oneself but in particular reviewers keep track of the whole?

Furthermore, if the whole task, of some reason, should be withdrawn how to identify the patches done within the scope of the whole task? To keep dead code doesn't seem to be an option to me.
good day
