OK, I did not know about that practice with the prefix.

Anyway, why should this patch go through media-tree when it is a single
patch affecting device tree binding only? I would expect it to be picked
by Rob or Mark.

Agree that this seems redundant. Absolutely no offense, just a curious
newbee question - why is the "media:" prefix added later on to *all* the
patches at all?

I understand that each subsystem has it own convenience what subject
prefix to use. Given that all patches are propperly formated after
the review process is finished I do not see a reason why the subject
should be changed.

So patches to "drivers/media/xxx" should land as "media: xxx: ..." and
patches to "Documentation/devicetree/bindings/xxx" should land as
"dt-bindings: media: xxx".

This allows easier git log browsing.

I do not know. Some time ago I tripped over a patch from Rob explaining
how to properly format dt-binding related patches. I also read a bunch
of his replies to emails that were kind of "out of bounds" in this regard.
So I got an impression that he is starting to be upset that people still
make the same mistakes and do not read devicetree/bindings/submitting-patches.txt

I deeply memorized that "rules" and once a while I go through the DT list
and reply to some emails that does not fit. Just because I am sure
that all maintainers are overloaded and surely have something more useful
to do than commenting on trivial mistakes.

Next time I will choose more wisely what emails I reply to :)

OK, sorry you spent your time discussing such a trivial thing folks.
I am still learning how to efficiently contribute and I still very much
depend on output and other great tools others created ;)

Thank you for your time,
