[Buildroot] Question about patches

Great, thanks for the heads up. The patch was more of an enhancement so
there's no rush, just wanted to make sure it wouldn't get lost.

I had a quick look around the website but couldn't find a release
schedule, merge windows, etc. If there's nothing like that right now it
would probably be useful to help keep a track of what's going on  for
end developers who are not as closely involved with the project.

Cheers,
Przemyslaw Wrzos
