So he should at least be able to name the relevant PRs.
Or name at least one. Then nobody would complain.

But stating "it's all well documented" without providing evidence
doesn't help. I for one was not able to find any open PRs that
deal specifically with 3ware hardware and 6.3, but not 6.[0-2].

Agreed, but he should name the PRs he's referring to.
You know, my crystal ball is at the shop for a check, and
it seems like everybody else's is, too.
