well, am not not anymore, but I think since the use of gerrit as the
patch management system things have become much more transparent. You
see the other patches, even from core team members waiting as well. And
as the patch-for-a-patch rule is mostly followed as well, many patches
get a much more friendly welcome ( That can be thought of as: Your patch
was a good idea, and we took it and here is an imporved version that
fits the project even better.)
