Me2 :)

That may be a flaw in some parts of this doc is that it tries to
get too detailed, too rigid, etc. for a process that is more fluid and
has lots of independent parts each working in its own slightly
different way. It does seem like there is value in much of what's
here, but there just aren't any black-and-white rules for exactly how
patches are handled.
