Hi Tobias,

Orphan requests get locked for 2 weeks to give time for the current
maintainer to respond, after that they need to be manually approved by
a TU. Approving requests is a manual action, and as such depends on the
free time of the team members, so unfortunately from time to time the
pending requests clog up.

I have approved your request.
