What I'm saying is that if the commit queue behavior is reverted, there
ought to be some sort of policy (strong suggestion? rule?) in place for
committers to discourage committing on top of a red tree as well. Maybe
there's already one, but it's not strongly enforced and it's very easy to
ignore if you just want to land your patch and start working on something
else. For what it's worth, it was especially frustrating for me since I was
only updating an interface in the Chromium platform layer and the 3 day
delay blocked me from landing any of the associated patches on the Chromium
