when a new ext4 patch is being submitted, it first added to the patch
queue on repo.or.cz, where the whole series (stable and unstable
patches) will be tested automatically. After the patches being stablized
a bit, Ted will pull ext4 patches from patch queue from repo.or.cz to
his git tree, and public the current patches in the git tree on
kernel.org.

Also there is a stable-boundary patch being added in repo.or.cz patch
queue to indicating where the unstable patches starts.
