I hadn't realized that you are the only one pushing to that git tree, I
simply assumed that all owners of stable kernels had write access to
all the branches.

Thanks!

With the arm-soc tree, we simply have a shared group-id on
gitolite.kernel.org and everyone in that group can push to it.

If that is the only thing you need, it should be trivial to let Ben
and Sasha push to /pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/stable/*.git as well,
I'm sure helpdesk@...nel.org can arrange that. Of course if you are
worried about having multiple accounts with write access to all the
branches, then that wouldn't be enough.
