You know that I tried that, and you know why I do not do that anymore: it
simply takes too long, and the review on the list focuses on things I
cannot focus on as much, I need to make sure that the patches *work*
first, whereas the patch review on the Git mailing list tends to ensure
that they have the proper form first.

I upstream patches when I have time.
