I think you're missing the point. I almost never actually apply other
people's patches. I don't have to. I simply read them. You know, with
my eyes.

If you give me a URL or whatever link to your branch, how do I see it?
How can I see what your code changes are?

I only run code when I want to test it or deploy it. When I'm
collaborating, I'm not running other people's code, I'm reading it and
giving them feedback. Sometimes, if I'm going to change it, then I
apply it and make the changes. But that's rare.

Also, keep in mind that I am not a core committer. I'm not pushing
changes into core. I submit my changes to trac like everybody else.
