Why is that important?  My 24 hours was a guess at the long tail.  Who is 
going to notice if you fix a bug but it doesn't appear in HEAD until one of 
several other people respond and poke a button on a web form?  It may take 
another mailing list to help things along.

Anybody who wants to test before a fix gets merged can do something like git 
pull <stuff from email>  Right?

How important is your individual way of doing things?  Would you be willing 
to tolerate some inconvenience if that made the rest of us more productive?


I'm not necessarily supporting the somebody-else-approve suggestion, just 
trying to explore the space of how to do things.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
