Yes, you heard it right, we're moving away from patches sent via email.

The fax number you should use from now on is 1-900-555-1212.

@monsieuricon @hyeyoo Can I deliver my patches on punch cards? I can use Fedex to ship a container if you want?

Only if you deliver the data by first using the cards to weave silk cloth.

Cotton tapestries will be rejected.

@monsieuricon Well IIRC my ISP has a fax proxy service so works for me.

Also reminds me of this April Fools post, which sadly didn't end up with actual code for the patch reading side: https://drewdevault.com/2022/04/01/git-snail-mail.html

@monsieuricon Ah, that explains why the maximum number of columns was not changed from 80 (the old punched card standard) to 96 (the new smaller IBM punched card standard), but to 100 (the number of Elite characters that fit on a 215-mm wide fax roll)...

@raggi You can use our web relay to submit it. Check out https://b4.docs.kernel.org/en/latest/contributor/overview.html . Very soon we'll integrate other mechanisms to submit patches, like Github pull request.
