Yes, I vanished for a few weeks because I was busy otherwise. Where is
the problem? The world was still turning and the fix was not a highly
critical issue.

And your "make it easier" thing is utter bullshit. It takes me less
time to apply a single patch from mail than pulling a tree and
verifying the commit.

Aside of that, core code goes always directly through me and not via

Dammit, there are established workflows and there is no reason, except
for a highly critical bug fix to circumvent them. And if such a
situation happens, then the correct thing is to resend the patch to
Andrew and Linus and explaining, why its critical and can't wait for
the lazy maintainer to reappear.

Me and others have observed your busybody behaviour often enough. It
does not really earn you trust and respect.

Just for the record: I'm not pulling anything from you and I'm not
going to pull a tree from my submaintainers which contains a merge
from you.
