This was discussed before, and we realized that it would make the whole merging business impractical, considering that each review may take several days. So I'm for letting Michael do his merging work with no review, and then have some occasional flames about how things were merged.

Also there are some areas where the merges are not that simple because the two codebases diverged too much, in that case it is necessary the work of a dedicated maintainer to port the relevant changes.

Since this is a policy issue, should be discussed on the ML.

It has been 3 years since this ticket has been opened, and I thus assume relevant discussion would have happened on the mailing list. In any case, in my opinion this should not be a ticket, or at the very least should not be at an "important" level. Since I am not a regular developer, I won't close this right away, but will leave this open for another few days and then close if there are no objections.
