Has Walter promised us that every pull request for the
WindowsAPI bindings will be put in right away?
Pull requests are merged once they pass review and automatic
testing. Walter Bright is not the only person who can merge pull
requests - anyone with commit access can.
Even if he had, what would be the point? It would greatly slow
down the whole process. We have SVN repositories so that people
can just put their updates straight in,
Only those who have access can do that. Getting patches into the
bindings repository has been historically difficult. Committers
have had to commit patches on behalf of other people.
and everyone else not only has access to the update straight
away but can obtain it with either a one-line command line
invocation or a few mouse clicks.
Git is not different in this regard. Proposed changes are
immediately available in your personal fork.
