It is close to two months that I have been the only person running
test-patches, even though several volunteers claimed they would do so.
It has been the main reason I shelled out €20 for a week of internet
access during my spring vacation.

My limited computing resources mean that I have to take every shortcut I
can to get this reasonably done.  It is a bottleneck of development.  My
shortcuts tend to lead to erroneous data for making decisions, cf
<URL:>, and
thus can alienate developers and cause unnecessary delays and hickups.

It also means that I can spare no flexibility for dealing with things
like submissions not following the rules
<URL:>, again
possibly alienating developers instead of getting them more smoothly
into our procedures.
