Having a delay means developers cannot quickly verify that their stable-branch annotations correctly resulted in their patch being applied where they wanted. In the rare case that we have bad patches applied through the process, we can treat it like a CI failure, where the maintainer steps in, force-pushes the bad patches off the WIP branch, and adds annotations to prevent automation from re-applying the commits later. _______________________________________________ mesa-dev mailing list email@example.com https://lists.freedesktop.org/mailman/listinfo/mesa-dev
