I am a Linux kernel Reviewer for the fpga n3000/vista creek which
has several bitstream based baseband devices.  So I want to help
out here as well.

Hey Tom, 
Thanks for your recent reviews.
My only concern with this is how in reality you would be able to serve the role of maintainer for these drivers/lib/test and engage in meaningful discussions? 
Do you understand 3GPP and the related processing and what these devices are actually doing? Supporting them in linux and generic coding guide line review is one thing, but maintainer would need broader understanding arguably. 
I think you reviews are super valuable (dpdk coding guide lines, error handling...) and I can make sure to include you generally for review for all related contributions, I am just unsure whether in reality that corresponds to what would be required to be a maintainer. 
I am just thinking aloud here, let me know what you think
Thanks
Nic

I share your concern.

I am interested in reviewing baseband changes.

In the kernel this is handled by the R: Reviewer tag which was part of the original patch.

When i submit kernel patches, i use the get_maintainter.pl script so i do not need to remember everyone interested. When i receive patches i look at just the cc,to's to figure out which project needs help.  While you can create rules to look for strings in the subject line, it does not scale at all.

I went this new route based on Thomas' feed back on my original change.

Now with your feedback, is there a strong enough reason to accept my original change ?

If not, well that's ok.

Tom

Hi Tom, 
I will let Thomas and Bruce chime in on this Reviewer-list concept, there is arguably merit to this given this is used in some linux foundation projects but probably needs generic discussion on the DPDK tech board.
Specifically for bbdev for now, I can make sure to include you in.
