Exchanged an email with Jonathan..
I missed the window for submitting the patches for 3.12. He said that they'll go for 3.13 now.
I don't think they'll be reviewing the patches during the merge window..
I guess I'll rebase the work and push it to the trees koen maintains. and write a few blogposts on the new interface for the continuous sampling.
Not exactly sure what to do now lol. this patches stuff got delayed by two weeks that the merge window will last. I'll have to push on these patches after gsoc timelines perhaps.
