I'm willing to deal with some honest mistakes with my packages in order to foster a vibrant and active community. I am happy to answer questions about my packages, but I feel spoiled by how nicely things work as an upstream with code hosting sites like GitLab. If we had merge requests, online and email reviews, one-click auto-merge (and uploads!) I think we'd have a better team collaboration workflow. Even post-commit/upload emailed diffs would at least let me review changes after the fact, so I could repair things if I noticed a big problem. Cheers, -Barry
