Hey Andreas,

Since we have no "package maintainers", but a big team of enthusiasts
trying to make as much cool things happen as possible, everybody is
interested in bug fixes or a new upstream version or something else
deadly clever. I really like this system and it's very encouraging to
work that way.

Unfortunately, our ToReview lists (those of package changes by
non-maintainers) and of NEW packages (as discussed on this list already)
grew longer and longer. So I'm not quite sure, if we get stuff in
easier, but the process is lighter... yes.

Up to now the changes we made were always bound to something, either: 

      * new upstream release
      * a transition (big ones like python2.4, gcc-4.0, smaller ones
        like libhowl0 moving out, ...)
      * a bugfix

So reviewing was always a bit easier, since you could focus on

Hope that explains our processes a bit.

Have a nice day,
