If you want discussion of them, it would be most helpful to submit as
attachments to the list where the context of discussion will exist in
immutable form, rather than as a git branch that might disappear or be
replaced. ~40 is a lot for attachments to a single message, but ~40
individual posts would also be overwhelming, so it probably makes
sense to group them by areas of functionality or layering or
something. Likely there are going to be a bunch that are fairly
uncontroversial and mechanical, and some that are more invasive and
that will attract more meaningful discussion.
