Processing MRs very slow?

Recently there have been some issues with CI that has slowed down 
merging. In particular a performance test (T9630) was failing on CI. 
That is fixed now and as of today Marge-Bot seems to be merging MRs 
again. I'll continue to monitor this in the coming days.

Iavor, your MR was approved but not assigned to Marge-bot, and so was 
not in the merge queue. I'm not sure who has permission to do this, but 
you can always ping the approvers. In this case I've assigned to 
Marge-bot for you, and it will hopefully be merge soon.
