The "how to contribute a patch" page https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/wikis/working-conventions/fixing-bugs doesn't say anything about the process of actually getting it committed, notably:
* Picking approvers
* Assigning to Marge
* Monitoring progress if it doesn't land within 24 hrs; even knowing when to time out would help.
There's a bit of info, rather oddly, on the GHC wiki root page https://gitlab.haskell.org/ghc/ghc/wikis/home
The initial stuff about opening a MR is details, but there is not enough on these latter steps I think.
I'm cc'ing Sandy He's asking "what next"<https://nam06.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fgitlab.haskell.org%2Fghc%2Fghc%2Fmerge_requests%2F668%23note_198496&data=01%7C01%7Csimonpj%40microsoft.com%7Ccffab540b753400fffa208d6d94b42f7%7C72f988bf86f141af91ab2d7cd011db47%7C1&sdata=6Ha%2BqotYMQeWBnMUPUk2mhOIl1wrPI1ZI%2FnNZZszGsE%3D&reserved=0> and I wanted to say "look at the instructions here" but failed to find a suitable "here."
