Thanks for this explanation. This is something I was thinking about and
I do understand how busy you guys are - respect your efforts very much
and cannot ask for something more :)

Indeed it would be good to contribute not only with my pwn patches but
review/test others as well. Will try to participate more as much as
workload allows.

As for my reminders I'm just trying to make sure stuff that affects me
gets upstreamed sometime soon. Still I'm trying to not be noisy - if my
reminders really annoy you guys I'll try to send them only in case of
emergency.
