for trivial stuff we never had a upstream first policy. maybe it was
decided to put one in place and i missed it. in general it is much
better to ask people to send it upstream in parallel.

consider the case where contributor might not know how to do so or runs
into some other problem. this would result in the feature not hitting

personally i merge ask for upstream and when i bump the next time i see
if it happened or i will do so myself.

the last years have shown that only 50% of the "please send it upstream"
will reach upstream.
