I have a feeling we should wait a little longer than that. I usually
waited a week for things which I mailed the list about, to allow for a
detailed discussion before merging.

Although, my proposals dealt with coreutils and other important
things. So maybe I'm overestimating how much notice is needed.

Sounds good to me. :)
