Yes, I am aware of that, the problem with github pull requests is that
they are outside of the FreeBSD bug report process, they do not get
assigned to maintainers, nobody notices them, they just stay there, and
get obsolete.
There have been 61 before, yes, I closed a lot because they were
obsolete because it is outside of our process and nobody noticed them,
and for the rest either asked the submitter to open a PR on our
bugzilla, or opened one myself.
