I understand your frustration.

TJ who was handling the doc up until now has very recently resigned.

We haven't found anyone to replace him in this role yet.

Until then, you might see some fluctuations in how fast these changes
are pulled upstream.

Would you mind posting a link to these changes so I can look at them
in the meantime?
