these have been now merged. Sorry for the delay.

We were mostly busy in preparing for v3.7.0 release, that's why we did not
merge new stuff.
I believe that "package stabilization" in Alpine it's the equivalent of
moving the package from testing->{community,main}. Usually when a package
is tested, known to be working and it has a maintainer we don't have
objection to merge move requests.
