I totally agree, it's not "against" the code of conflict that I helped

Joe, you know better than to send trivial stuff to maintainers who don't
want it. Send it through the trivial maintainer for subsystems that
have expressed annoyance at this, it's not the first time this has

Some maintainers, like me, are fine with your types of patches, I'd
stick to those subsystems if you like doing this type of work.

Also, don't send stuff that is broken, that's not the sign of a trivial
patch :(
