I wouldn’t know how to set this up.  Hydra isn’t powerful enough for our
*current* purposes, so I wouldn’t want to increase the load at this

I’d rather not have a weekly report (I get enough email through the
various Guix mailing lists already).  The debbugs interface shows all
open patches already.  (We should get more people to use guix-patches
instead of guix-devel, though.)

Other than that I’d like to second everything Leo has written.

I agree with Pjotr that obviously it would be nice to have faster/more
reviews/mentoring.  That’s something everybody can help with, even if it
is just a matter of reviewing licenses or trying to build or run the
package.  But this all falls apart under stress (speaking from
experience here), so it’s best not to force it.
