Hi Thomas,

From my POV this isn't "playing maintainer". You stopped reacting on the
issue and I thought I make it easier for you (and others) to handle the
patches in case you didn't take because of being busy with other stuff.

I didn't add that stable annotation because I didn't want to add it
without you being ok with it. And actually it's easy to get a patch into
stable that isn't annotated. The other way round is harder.

To be fair Daniel said to take my pull request a few days before your
tip-bot told me that you finally took the patch. I could argue that it
was your turn to tell Daniel that you took a part of the patches that
were in my pull request. (But I don't as the situation it handled now
and even if not, the only bad thing that would have happend is that
another patch is duplicated in the history. shrug)
