Nice to see that the overlayfs "dream" comes true.
overlayfs.current has now got a "review" - will there be a v25
pull-request soonish or is overlayfs.current still in WIP?
Where is that review process happening? On linux-fsdevel I could not
find any informations.

Some updated patches have no review credits - for example the big
overlay filesystem patch which mentions AV's review, etc.

Maintainers file could have a tree item pointing to your personal Git
repository.

Is the documentation up2date?

Some files below fs/overlayfs/ have copyright pointing to year 2011 by
Novell - needs an update?

Thought about a co-maintainer?

Docs could have a pointer to the testsuite by David Howells [1]?

...etc.
