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.
