BTW some of these are things that people have been asking for for years. In particular:

A “merges” keyword (from 2013) (from 2016) (recent)

Disable the default tarballs for releases
Amazingly I can't find an isaacs/github issue about this; see also eg (recent)

Commenting in the isaacs/github repository has recently been turned off, despite no migration as discussed in etc having occurred, so I guess those issues have started being recreated ad-hoc in the github/feedback discussions. (This is frustrating for those who had put a lot of effort into describing GitHub problems in the isaacs repo!)

Anyway, just a note pointing at some of the other places where similar proposals are being made. In particular, the staff reply on #6003 re default tarballs may be of interest.
