yup, that would be cool.

I've just asked on #debian-www to comment:

[15:37] <      h01ger> | it would be very nice if you could comment on
the patches proposed/linked in #859122 - those are
https://salsa.debian.org/webmaster-team/webwml/merge_requests/41 and 

I also note #859122 is not marked 'patch'.

I'm not this pessimistic: first, (after a while) those patches should 
be pretty clear ones and they will know that. second, I do think that in
the long term we should just be able to directly push our DLAs on the
website, without a (human) proxy.

on salsa. I was also granted access 4 weeks ago it seems :)

agreed. and as said (previously): for a start being i'm happy to act as a human

you were given access a week ago, too. \o/

that's almost like next week ;)

sure, more automation = better.

I'm confident we will, eventually. #859122 was filed >18 months ago, so
I don't think it's suddenly urgent, though I fully agree it would be
more than nice to have this fixed before the bug is two years old.
