I tend to agree. If someone has commit rights then I generally trust
their judgement when it comes to trivial patches. That being said, we
should indeed offer more guidance regarding what constitutes "trivial".

We currently have a lack of reviewers and I don't want this lack to
become a reason why those contributors we do have might be driven
