what was done in practice was
when the author had write access, patch was ok-ed, author commited
whebn the author has no write access patch was commited by reviewer and later
then was ok-ed by reviewer and applied by patch monkey

the issue is, if i ok a patch nowadays, nothing happens.
and with git applying is a single keypress per mail
thats why iam not so happy with ok-ing patches, iam affraid patches are
forgotten and lost.

everyone is confused by git at first and then starts loving it after getting
used to it. Its alot more powerfull than svn

Many things microsoft did are stupid, but not doing something just because
microsoft did it is even more stupid. If everything ms did were stupid they
would be bankrupt already.
