Q to all candidates: NEW queue
For as long as I can remember, there has been complaints about the
delays caused by NEW processing (and
https://ftp-master.debian.org/stat.html shows that we constantly have
250-300 packages waiting to be processed).
What is your diagnostic of this issue?
What solutions do you envision about this issue? Is that just something
that we have to live with?
Specifically, Jonathan writes that he would like to "Reduce bottlenecks
that affect our contributors.". That sounds like a good example.
Personnally, I wonder if we are being overly cautious about NEW. I
wonder if we could move to checking a posteriori (accept the package in
unstable; maybe don't let it migrate to testing until it is reviewed).
