I don't see any fundamental problem here. This is after all a volunteer
project and people have limited time to review patches, as they have
limited time for anything they do on the project. Of course we all
understand that it is frustrating when it takes a while for a patch
to be approved, but there is no one who can order someone else to
spend more time on this. Now perhaps more people should have approval
authority, but that of course has its own draw backs in terms of
keeping the entire project under control. There is always a
fundamental trade off between reliability/stability/control and
adding nice new features.
Can you give some idea of why you feel it is so urgent to get this
patch in place. I don't see it as an urgent matter, and I don't find
this delay unreasonable, but perhaps I am missing something.
