I really think that this is the only exception to the procees, and given
that David is only looking at the last 2 -stable releases (that would be
4.20 and 4.19 right now) it gets a bit tricky for folks who are not
intimate with the process. So no, you're not annoying anyone :)

FWIW, the process is documented here:
