We have a rule in the commitfest process, which I mentioned in some
other thread yesterday, which we have never enforced as far as I
remember -- which is that the last commitfest only accepts patches that
have already been submitted to previous commitfests.  If we were to
enforce that one, I think we put a limit to the size of the last
commitfest, reducing the amount of work necessary to close it.

I definitely think we should be stricter about closing each commitfest
on the last day of the month.  To improve on the fairness front we could
also be stricter about giving priority to reviewing patches that have
been punted from previous commitfest.
