In the XFS community, we have 2 clear leaders in terms of contributions of significant feaures and depth of knowledge - Christoph and Dave.

If you look at the number of patches submitted by developers since 3.0 who have more than 10 patches, we get the following:

    319 Author: Dave Chinner <dchinner@xxxxxxxxxx>
    163 Author: Christoph Hellwig <hch@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     51 Author: Christoph Hellwig <hch@xxxxxx>
     35 Author: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     34 Author: Chandra Seetharaman <sekharan@xxxxxxxxxx>
     29 Author: Al Viro <viro@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     28 Author: Brian Foster <bfoster@xxxxxxxxxx>
     25 Author: Zhi Yong Wu <wuzhy@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     24 Author: Jeff Liu <jeff.liu@xxxxxxxxxx>
     21 Author: Jie Liu <jeff.liu@xxxxxxxxxx>
     20 Author: Mark Tinguely <tinguely@xxxxxxx>
     16 Author: Dave Chinner <david@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>
     12 Author: Eric Sandeen <sandeen@xxxxxxxxxx>
     12 Author: Carlos Maiolino <cmaiolino@xxxxxxxxxx>

If we as a community had more capacity for patch review, Dave's numbers would have jumped up even higher :)

It is certainly very welcome to bring new developers into our community, but if we are going to add a co-maintainer for XFS, we really need to have one of our two leading developers in that role.

Best regards,

Ric

Hi Ben,

How exactly did we decide to add a new co-maintainer? Shouldn't we have some discussion on the list and see some substantial history of contributions?

Best regards,

Ric
