Hosting on github is fine with us in general. We do prefer to get
signed pull requests in particular when they come from other sources
than kernel.org, mostly because there's another third party involved in
hosting the repo and by using signed tags there's less room for anyone
to do bad stuff with the repository without someone noticing.

If you host on github, please still use native git pull requests and not the
ones that github provides via the web interface.

Note however, that given the total volume of patches there's no strong need for
you to have a public repo just to send code to us -- we're happy applying
patches at the volumes we're currently looking at. I can imagine other reasons
for why you would like to have a public repo though.


Thanks,

-Olof
