By the way, regarding that repository, could someone merge my pull request

In general, it's a bit frustrating how a lot of the patches in the
Phabricator queue seem to take a while to get noticed. Don't take it
personally, I'm just sharing my impressions, but I do feel it's taking away
some momentum - not good for me & other contributors, and not good for the
project. I know reviewers are understaffed, maybe consider spreading commit
rights a bit more widely until the situation improves?
