Last thing we want! And I do appreciate such concerns of every
individual. We do, however, have some 30 people who can push to

and we have another even larger group of people without push rights
who do not mind commenting on peers. Even today we should be able to
distribute the load better. 

I am not asking you in particular, but everyone in general, if you
feel like coaching one submission per week. That would take a load
of work away from Ricardo and Ludo and improve speed dramatically.

This is the first thing I am trying :). The main difference with the
existing approach is that I want to have more engagement from fresh
contributors who can also peer review. Review is an excellent way of
learning. How exactly we are going to do this is not clear yet. But
that is what I am thinking. 

Meanwhile I want to know what limits people actually have. I think 2
weeks is not acceptable (but that should be obvious).
