A maintainer of a library has the right to do what he wants. But it does
not seem that Steven is aware of the situation. Also others may have
write access to 'random' for all I know, and be able to review the merge
and make the change. In the 'develop' regression tests for 'random'
there are no issues which I can see in the results and the last change
was over 4 months ago.
