In the past, nearly all patches from the RTEMS community have filtered
through me first.  This lets them get into the official RTEMS patches
and get some use before moving on.  At the moment, the newlib and
binutils CVS have no known RTEMS issues and gcc has most of the
RTEMS patches merged.  I submitted some that are not in yet AFAIK.

I like it this way but must admit that it puts burden on me in
the case where the patch is significant and I have slowed the
process unnecessarily in the past.  In particular, the gdb
patch is too large and needs to be cleared up.

THe RTEMS GDB patches require some paperwork from a couple of 
people before they can be submitted.
