We've never had a problem with peer review before. People review the 
commit lists which receive all commits with full diffs and react if they 
see something off. That is a very well working peer review system. I 
don't see that improving with github; in fact I see it becoming worse: 
commit emails no longer get diffs at all, and people are less likely to 
look at a webinterface for a quick review than they are to take a quick 
look at an email. The move from Plone to github certainly made me stop 
all review work, where I reviewed all commits to core code before.
