That sounds like a maintenance nightmare: if dashbot starts merging any 
and all branches on request, someone will have to "clean up the mess" 
every now and then. Different people would be working on the same fix 
because it hasn't made upstream yet. 

That could be a good thing for the maintainer to be able to choose the 
best fix, but it's also a waste of effort in a project lacking manpower 
already. But the big problem is dashbot being a bot: not all requested 
merges will work and so it'll have to reset to a known state, etc.
