I can create a pull request, true. But until someone accepts it, the
build is still broken. And if the library maintainer is unresponsive,
this may lead to situations like the one we're discussing.
If there are "supervisors" who have access to all repositories, this
helps but not much. The supervisors may miss the pull request or be
busy with other things.
