> reviewing them is not
> reviewing a patch is boring, takes time to do it properly, there's no glory in doing it, and if you commit it you are taking the responsability

techtonik> Few key issues:
techtonik> 1. responsibility to patch author, but not the blame, help make patches better without placing additional burden
techtonik> 2. glory for reviews is solved by highscore system
techtonik> 3. proper crediting rules are required to make 1,2 possible and everyone happy
techtonik> 3.1. that means writing author, commiter and reviewers
techtonik> (see example of Chromium commits and process)
techtonik> We may need to maintain IPython Notebook with XML-RPC recipes to fetch the data.
> knowing what to do is different from doing it
techtonik> I agree, but many people ask about a plan.
techtonik> They don't even know what to do.
