I'm forwarding this to -devel for wider comment. I think contributing to Darcs is harder and less inviting than it need be. Do you agree ? Any ideas about things we could do to update our process ?

With you two busy, and noone else obviously on the team, it has felt a bit closed/declining/anti-contributory. I know code review is important for Darcs and we still need that in some form.
