I'm glad you mentioned that on-list --- I forgot to.

I think that that regularity is a huge, huge win and is one of the
more important aspects of the shift in project process that's taking

There should not be any sending of patches in particular directions!

*ALL* patches should go through BugGoo.  You, jblack, should be
working off of buggoo.

Now, sure... if there's a neglected patch in buggoo and you want to
ping somebody, then Jblack's directions make sense (and hopefully that
is more like what he meant).

Jblack: I'd be in favor of a PQM-ish policy that *all* changes must
have an associated buggoo issue which includes a merge request for the
changes.   Would you be willing to require that?

I appreciate your conservatism in such matters.

The voting system would be a win here.  Really, there should be a list
of "topics" and if a proposed change here overlaps with one of those
topics (e.g., an archive format change) then it should get a "Flag"
vote which blocks it from integration without
more-serious-than-average review.
