Oh, this is easy: if I maintain something myself, I don't ask anyone, I
just commit whatever seems appropriate to me, and that's it.  When I
send patches for emacs UI to the mailing list, it's like I ask
permissions to modify a part of code I wrote.

Also I always have a bad feeling that I load Ludovic (who is the only
person reviewing these patches) with a useless additional work.

Finally, I feel like I clog the mailing list with my patches.  Sometimes
I want to make some small change, but then I think: «Ah, it's not so
big, no one will ever notice it anyway, so I wouldn't bother people with
it.»  (although recently myglc2 noticed several such things :-))
