How do you mean that? Speed of the site itself or time it takes to review?

Feel free to help! If there is a patch, push it to gerrit to make sure 
it gets reviewed. It's a community based OpenSource project so the 
labour needs to be done by the community.

Are there Project Managers at all?? Besides, the Association doesn't 
develop TYPO3. The community develops it, the Association only funds 
some development and other activities as it's decided by the Association

Correct. We do lack manpower, especially for core team reviews. We're 
all doing what we can in our spare time.

You've lost me here... What do you mean by these points?

There no project managers that I'm aware of...

> * Believe in community

We all do! That's why it's a community based project.

Many code sprints use Kanban boards; the flow/neos team uses scrum...

Who pays the bill here? If you think the Association should pay for it, 
make a proposal and get the members to vote for it. Or maybe you can pay it?

It's a community project with no full time paid developers. We all have 
a job, family life and need to sleep; then there is also time left for 
TYPO3 work. We've already made sure there is a "Friendly Ghost" for each 
week who tries to look at each new issue.
Again, feel free to help to look at new issues, test them and see if 
they are valid or not. That will make the life of the Friendly Ghost a 
lot easier!

If you make the effort to get these patches in the core you don't need 
to apply them to each update :-)
