I can see them.

Please teach me a little more because I am not experienced enough
in this community.

I checked MAINTAINERS, but I could not find arm at kernel.org.
Is it documented somewhere?

I found ARM SUB-ARCHITECTURES entry in that file, but it does not mention
the responsible individuals.
(I assume, you and Olof are the ones.)

L:      linux-arm-kernel at lists.infradead.org (moderated for non-subscribers)
S:      Maintained
F:      arch/arm/mach-*/
F:      arch/arm/plat-*/
T:      git git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/arm/arm-soc.git

I have one more question.

Are you receiving pull requests from each sub-arch maintainer?
Or should every patch be submitted to arm at kernel.org and
applied by you (or other ARM-SoC maintainers)?

I have not earned enough reputations in this ML, so I know
it is too early for me to handle pull-reqs.

I understand the general development process of Linux, but
the maintainership of the ARM-SoC subsystem looks more hierarchized, so
I just want to know its development process correctly.

Best Regards
Masahiro Yamada
