"Merge requests are for when one package is replacing another one. Users
still have to resubmit a package under a new name and may request
merging of the old version's comments and votes. This has nothing to do
with 'git merge' and is not similar to github's merge requests."

i never made the claim this was github, and i find it silly that you're
inferring i ever had that assumption.
