Comment on patch management RE: [PATCH]std=c89 not supported

I've had no feed back on this yet, so I dont know.

But on the topic of patching, the volume of patches seems to be creeping up
(I could be wrong, but that is my feeling), and I have noted more use of the
[PATCH](resend) headings, indicating more people are chasing their patches.

So perhaps we need a patch manager to help out, with acknowledging the patch
and chasing the committers to pass/fail the patch, and trying to stop
patches falling in cracks.

We can probably take some heart from the fact that the community is so
active that this might become necessary.

Has this been committed, or otherwise resolved?
