Could you also please document the best way to request for comments/discussion on a patch?

Also comment on reasonable time periods before a patch submitted by a developer with archive access is held up for discussion before commit.

Note to self:

Use madwifi-devel if you expect a longish discussion. Otherwise filing a ticket might work as well (maybe with a short note to madwifi-devel for requesting comments). Wait at least 3-4 days for comments. After that period: drop patch, renew your request once, announce that it will be committed if no one objects during the next 3-4 days, ... depends on you and your feeling on your patch.
