So that is how you work, we have mental models about
how the upstream maintainers workflow is done but always
guessed it was something like this, nice to know.

I don't need the ACKs becuase there is just always some reason or
nervousness that make me sit and git pull --ff-only all the time during
the merge window because I worry that something will break on mine
or others machines.

Can't you just tool something that mails automatically after-the-fact?
Greg's "notices" that patch so or so was applied are clearly
auto-generated by a script after he applied and tested a whole
bunch of them, the same should be possible for pull requests
methinks? Just something you run after a workday sealing the
deal.
