I'm glad to hear that the postinst warning is something that could be
But also, given that the postinst warning occurred after the previous TC
ruling, I don't think the previous TC ruling alone gives sufficient
confidence that a patch would not be ignored or rejected. I don't think
anyone is expecting the TC to pre-approve a patch sight-unseen; rather,
in the past the TC has used wordings like "merging reasonable
contributions" to give some indication of what the TC expects.
