I don't think that would help. The challenge is that bug-fixing and
patch review isn't really where the maintainers' effort is right now.
Guix and Guile 3 are the major efforts.  We don't need to make it
easier to submit patches.  We need to make it easier to incorporate

Some projects (like Pixman) have a rule that if a patch receives no
opposition after a few weeks and a couple of pings, you are free to
push it.  I wonder if that would work here? Or would it be too

My two cents,
