I assumed that "committer flow" is simply pushing a patch without
submitting to code review or without discussion.
I thought committers [1] have the authority in case of typo or small
Do I misunderstand?


According to your advice, I will update the following:
  * page 12: correct "Arcanist"
  * page 9: update ghc-proposals flow
  * after page 8 (new page 9): add a simple diagram for the various ticket
  * page 12: add "travis"
