I think archiving the patches on the mailing list makes sense. For
example, I did not get around to reviewing this patch this weekend.

I recall trying to dig Sergio's patches last time I wanted to try them
out being troublesome in some way.

A GitHub fork will mildly help merging this (if you happen to be a
GitHub user), but I would personally be fine with patches, so whatever
you prefer. GitHub PR would help multiple people take a look at the
patch, too; I'd have created one anyway.

I would prefer to merge multiple changes in this instance, to better
preserve historical authorship information.

I somehow missed that reply from Richard. :-(
