I would ask them if they minded if you just commited those fixes, then
you could mark it fixed. If they are not review blockers, then you
could also just mark it approved and leave it at that.

I would send them a personal email, wait a bit more, then note this to
fedora-devel, then perhaps wait a bit more and bring it up to fesco. 

There seems to be lots of questions that come up on merge reviews. ;( 

To help this out, I have started a wiki page at: 


Perhaps we can polish that up and note it to interested Merge

Feedback welcome.
