And come to think of it, it is also the reason for an incredible
oddity in our current process which is the "countdown". Normally, once
a change has been reviewed as OK and passed CI, it is just submitted.
But in the past, they would enter some limbo (because nobody would do
the work to submit them), and so we had to institute a countdown
process, which means that it takes a minimum of 2 days before a
contributor can see their patch go live.
