Sorry about that. I had "temporarily" disabled the Merge Request
functionality while trying to hash out some sort of policy. It
faded to the back of my mind and ... well, you just nudged my mind ;-)
The notes on  and in particular the quote from the website are
good general advice in the mean-time so I've re-enabled Merge Requests
again. You should be able to submit an MR for your changes. When you
do, add the backend/pixma label (and assign @ro-ben and/or @llagendijk
as they are most familiar with that backend).
Hope this helps,
