Hmmm... When you feel we need something less bureaucratic that waiting
for maintainer approval for small fixes, we should establish rules for
that and document them. I even wondered myself how to document this for
some of my ports (Basically saying that I care for them, but feel fine
when others will fix bug when they find them).
OTOH I can't see whether Steffen was happy with the last minor update by
just looking at the commit log, and I don't like fake approvals. Let
this commit stand as is, it is no big deal in this case, but since you
have to draw the line somewhere either submit criteria for commits that
don't need maintainer approval so we can discuss them (preferred fix) or
just wait for maintainer timeout next time (easy fix).
Btw, perhaps Steffen should submit a request upstream to keep older
versions a little longer, to avoid the problems we are currently
experiencing. This would be better than silently fixing the symptoms
without improving the situation.
