Between Scylla and Charybdis, eh? :)

I'm glad to
hear from Dmitry that this has been happening less of late.

I may simply have a narrow-ish area of interest, though. The kind of patches that might fall through the crash are likely targeting an area without an active maintainer.

An active patch herder might manage those in Patchwork, but as long as they are submitted to the bug tracker, they won't be lost (even if no one is actively reviewing them).

Though of course it would be much better if the bug tracker assigned a tag "patch" to such bug reports automatically.
