Please double check on all of these that you have added the current
maintainer(s) to the CC on the tickets?

The merge reviews were filed in mass and have no one attached, so in
some cases they current maintainers may be unaware of the ticket at
all.

Well, for very minor stuff, sure. However, I don't think it's a good
idea for you to make big changes to packages simply for the sake of a
merge review. You should still obey the guidelines on who is allowed to
touch what packages when. I think we also want to know in merge reviews
if our maintainer is unresponsive.
