I hope we can set up some kind of DIP review process where Mihails and other well-known community members, like Jonathan, Timon, Steven, or Amaury himself, can whip DIPs into shape before Walter and Andrei have to spend their valuable
time reviewing them.

That process is what Mihails is in charge of. It's a difficult and thankless job, as it attracts criticism from all sides. We are lucky that Mihails has taken on the challenge. He has my full confidence and support.

I know of the new DIP process and that Mihails is running it:


That's great, but I'm referring to the community helping Mihails more. Here are the counts for how many DIP PRs the above well-known community members commented on:

Mihails: 12 https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/pulls?utf8=✓&q=is%3Apr%20dicebot Jonathan: 0 https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/pulls?utf8=✓&q=is%3Apr%20jonathan Timon: 0 https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/pulls?utf8=✓&q=is%3Apr%20timon Steven: 1 https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/pulls?utf8=✓&q=is%3Apr%20steven Amaury: 2 https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/pulls?utf8=✓&q=is%3Apr%20deadalnix

This is not meant as a criticism of those people: it's merely a random sample of outspoken forum members, to show that Mihails could use some help. My own count is 0, I'll try to change that.

More people from the forum who feel strongly about changes should chip in and help Mihails, that's all I'm saying.
