You can approve it yourself! This is a consensus-based project.

Review Will's patch, and between the two of you can decide if the
patch is simple enough, and obvious enough that two people agreeing
constitutes consensus for the fix.

We want to keep gettext in sync, and if that means bison 2.7, then that's
fine. Bison 2.7 has been around for two years and is quite stable.
The two of you could have come to that conclusion and checked in the change.

Please empower yourself to review code and help others checkin their changes.
