    Oh, the last sentence I suggested I think makes things more clearly `Any commiter can
approve and merge a PR.`.
    I think we should write this guide such that it clearly implies CTR, as that is the current
agreed upon way of working.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
contact infrastructure at or file a JIRA ticket
with INFRA.
