How am I supposed to know if a patch has been ignored as an oversight
(in which case I would resend), or because the maintainer decided not
to include it (in which case I would not resend in order to not annoy
the maintainer)?

I guess most patches on the list come in unasked, so I cannot follow
your negative attitude because of this. Also, the patch does not
enforce the new icon on any platform. From a user's perspective, [1]
as mentioned on [2] is the official Git homepage, thus the icon used
on the homepage can be regarded as the official Git icon. In Git for
Windows, we try to have a consistent user experience, and we had a
report about gitk still using the "old" icon [3]. This patch fixes
that, and I'm sending it upstream in an effort to not let msysgit's
fork of git diverge too much from upstream.
