In those situations Cc Linus with an included rant (points for the best
rant) and the relevant subject lines to show when it was posted. It
happens - confusion about which tree is being merged, generally only

For an added bonus make sure the rant includes something highly quotable
and funny as a put down, then you'll make as well ;)
