No. I'm saying the reviewer-merges workflow looks like this: 1. Somebody creates a pull request 2. A reviewer reviews 3. OP fixes 4. Reviewer asks "have you signed the agreement? if not please sign" 5. OP says he/she signed it 6. Reviewer trusts OP's word and merges (I don't have a good short word for "somebody who created the pull request", so I abused Original Poster.) Whereas I'd prefer 1. Somebody creates a pull request 2. A reviewer reviews 3. OP fixes 4. Reviewer says "looks good to me, feel free to merge (if you're not a committer already, see http://foundation.zope.org/agreements)" 5. OP merges It's not a very strong preference. I can feel myself changing my mind already ;-) OTOH the implicit trust in step 6 makes me a bit uneasy, and I'm not quite sure how to verify the fact of the signing.

It's completely unclear to me, once the PR goes beyond "typo fixes". :( Marius Gedminas -- http://pov.lt/ -- Zope 3/BlueBream consulting and development
