This point came up in discussion with Eric, but I think it's useful to
throw the question out to the whole list.   Eric has recently worked
on some improvements to findutils and asked about the findutils policy
on reviewing patches via the list (as for, for example coreutils and
gnulib).  There wasn't a policy:-

Would the members of the list prefer to see the patches?   Would you
comment on them?   If the answer is yes, we should probably post
matches to the list.  Supposing we have a policy of posting patches to
the list before/after commit, do you think you would have the time to
review them?

Would you prefer to review them before the commit (and hence protect
the repository better against defects but be on the critical path) or
after (and hence risk there being commits which you don't think are a
good idea)?
