Thank you.

I'll try to move my trees to kernel.org in the coming days or weeks,
it will be better for everyone, I think (I just need one more
signature on my gpg key).

Meanwhile, I prefer that people use my 'stable' tree:
https://github.com/lucvoo/sparse
(never rebased, only contains the master branch and one backport)
while my sparse-dev repository is mainly a bunch of topic branches
in diverse state of development (but the master branch is the same
so it doesn't matter much).
