No, it just provides a web-based interface to what is handled
via mailing lists. It's just as easy for a maintainer to get
busy and not ack a patch submission on a web-based system as well.

I suspect that this is an 8xx-specific problem. The source of
the problem is that 8xx has been undermaintained for some time
and it only recently has gained a new maintainer.
