You may want to look at the file, and not the diff, which is already
listing 3 people.

Really not clear what point you are trying to make here, other than you
may not like how things are, but at some point, someone needs to merge
patches somewhere, in a repository that's convenient, only to have them
pulled by whoever is next up in the food chain. Where the code is really
does not matter much because: git is distributed, patches can be
collected from mailing-list archives.
