I think Mark misrepresents my sayings in their messages. We are ONLY
using git to exchange work and collaborate on the patchset with Raghav,
how else do you want us to work with Raghav on some git branch on
Savannah if Raghav doesnt have commit access? Don't we have the right
with Raghav to cooperate together on some patchset however we want? It
never meant that review process had to be skipped in ANY way.

Only Raghav and myself has showed up to cooperate on GNOME 40 upgrade
for now, and that's also why we are doing it this way.

I feel bad now that it seems like everyone assumes we are doing things
we are not.
