The list of "Pending Merges Waiting for Action by Me" shows the merge of Graves-4014 and Graves-1046 with messages "Someone needs to approve. If they're duplicates approve this merge." I approved this yesterday and I approved it again today. When you looked at the bottom of profile Graves-1046 you will see listed 2 entries for merging 4014 with 1046. When you look at the bottom of profile Graves-4014 you will see listed 2 entries for merging 4014 with 1046. Are these double entries a clue to why my approval is not recorded ?

Someone from the trusted list of these profiles need to approve the merge or it has to pass 30 days for automatic approval. I do not see your name as a manager so unless you are on the trusted list of both profiles you can not approve this merge. You could approve the merge for the one you are on the trusted list for but someone from the other profile still needs to approve it for the merge to go forward.

To answer the question: I think the registering of approval is usually pretty instantaneous (not positive), because if your the second person, you are given the merge page.

I also have the feeling that that duplicated merge proposal (something quirky happened) may give it trouble down the road. I am going to delete one. The problem being that it may delete them both. In which case I will re-propose the merge and you can approve it again.

As I thought eliminating one eliminated the other. but I've re proposed all should be well now.
Thanks. I was able to approve the merge request.
