I agree with Pedro. If you have the right number of reviews, you should 
be able to merge your own PR. The number of commiters is so low that we 
should not put additionnal constraints on merges. This is particularly 
important for OCA projects with very few contributors/developers ; it is 
already not easy to have 2 reviews, so if the second reviewer doesn't 
have commit rights and the author of the PR has it, he should be able to 
merge after the second positive review.
