Anyone on the dev team can.  They should:

- Review the request carefully.

- Accept it.

Of course, someone other than the author should accept a pull request.

Before release:

- Make sure the tests pass on windows for at least some version of

- Make sure the travis tests pass

I'm doing this for Reinout's 2 bug fixes.

This is a new feature.  This would provoke a 2.1 release.
I don't think it's urgent.  I'll accept it after the 2.0.1 release.

I've accepted these, provoked a travis build and have run the windows tests.

Once the travis tests run and pass (or fail with a certain spurious failure),
I'll make a release.

In addition to the review, I need a contributor agreement
from the author.

Yup. I think 36 has promise, but needs some work. I'll try to find time
to comment on it soon.
