This looks misleading, since there /are/ unit tests in the proposed patch.
I've switched the state to "patch review".
It merely needs someone to review the patch for errors/issues/etc., and then a
committer to ok it (but the reviewer needn't be a committer, though). Don't
hesitate to chime in on the issue.
