You're quite right in general. I had hoped that the frequency with
which I do offer patches would make it obvious that I'm aware of that
too. In this case, I'm currently two deep in a (dependent) stack of
gnulib patches and have hit an issue I am not confident I fully
understand that seems to require a trivial patch which it would take
rather less time for a committer to prepare than it would to review,
correct & push when received from me.
