[lustre-discuss] New community release model and 2.5.3 (and 2.x.0) patch lists?

I think in general this is a good idea.  As discussed at the OpenSFS board
meeting yesterday, it would be really nice for organizations which are
building custom releases themselves to provide this patch list as a wiki
page on the lustre.org wiki (http://wiki.lustre.org).

This would probably be a good first step, maybe format in such as way to
include a brief description of the patch and the problem it's solving for
that site.

I'm planning on doing this for my Org's release as well, so it's extremely
clear to anyone glancing at the site what we're doing and why we're doing
