Your help reviewing would be much welcome.

Currently there’s no strict “requirement” to help with patch review, but
the manual reads this (info "(guix) Commit Access"):

  One last thing: the project keeps moving forward because committers not
  only push their own awesome changes, but also offer some of their time
  _reviewing_ and pushing other people’s changes.  As a committer, you’re
  welcome to use your expertise and commit rights to help other
  contributors, too!

That hasn’t had the desired effect though—still too few reviewers among
the ~40 committers.  I’m not opposed to discussing whether to turn it
into a “requirement”.  A hot topic for those of us who’ll be in Paris
