Hi Lars, Julien,


Thanks for the pointers, I will read them up and follow the
recommendations with my future contributions.
Sorry for the mess…

But, let me ask first before reading the wikis, how do you prefer
submitting series that contain patches belonging to 2 distinct repos
(e.g. xen and livepatch-build-tools)?

I can see two ways:

   1) One series per project and mention in the cover letter that
modifications are required in another project (with link/title).
   2) Combine all the patches in one series and tag them differently. I.e

1) is preferable if you have a lot of patches in each repo. 2) can be
handy if you have only a couple of patches for one repo.

1 is also easier for automated tools (like patchew) to deal with.

Out of interest, in general developer will tend to cross-post those patches. So in what way this would make it easier?
