This is already the policy for bug reports, version bump requests, etc.
I think in the case of minor fixes, such as to tuxguitar, the fix can
be pushed by an admin without waiting for a reply from the maintainer,
but I agree, you should have been contacted directly. First by the
person reporting the bug, or later by the admin after applying the fix
in git. LQ is not a place where we take bug reports, since not everyone
reads those forums (I don't read them myself), hopefully admins who
do will be more diligent in contacting maintainers in the future.

I have updated our bug reports page to clarify the process.
