I only update that when I have patches ready for Linus to pull.

The route for patches is:
  Email to dm-devel at redhat.com.

  Captured here:
    (Patchwork state = New)

  Pulled into my working directory (quilt) here:
and also copied here:
(sometimes kernel.org is slower syncing changes)
  (Patchwork state = Under Review)

  Pulled into linux-next git.
  (Patchwork state = Awaiting Upstream)

  Finally when a batch is ready to send to Linus, a branch is
created here:
for Linus to pull.

  Pulled into Linus's tree.
  (Patchwork state = Accepted + Archived)

Joe's patches aren't quite ready to enter this workflow yet.  But look out
for them on dm-devel soon.
