both applied now.

I think that what tends to confuse me is when there is a mix of real patches and RFCs, because sometimes I overlook a patch thinking it's an RFC or that it depends on an RFC. Since I sometimes remain a few days not reviewing patches or some mails, I can quickly get out of context.

So the clearer the distinction between patches and RFCs and the more testing you run on your patch, the less the risk of a patch being confused.

What can also help is when you send a series of patches which depend one on another is simply to number them (git send-email may even help you run the mass mailing). That way, if we have to discuss one of them, it'll get easier to resend the full series from this one and ignore the old one.
