I know that but you miss my point. GIT is a tool to ease work on linux
kernel, but the way you use it makes harder life of users of your
tree. For example your tree contains more than 350 000 objects ! That
makes a lot of git commands running slow...

Let's say I'm developing a net drivers on ARM platform. I'm actually
do not care about ARM development, but I do care about net tree. To do
that, I just need to clone net tree because I know that ARM should be
OK with this tree. What about MIPS ?

I'm just wondering why not asking to Linus to pull from your tree like
every others maintainers do ?
