I can help test some of the patches I've seen people posting to the
tracker, but I can't commit to svn. Beyond running the setuptools test
suite and verifying that things seems to work for me and my environment,
is there anything else that will help get some of the patches into svn?
BTW, most of those things you mention all effectively boil down to
writing patches in one way or another. :-) How do we make sure that
after they get some review they get checked in when it seems so few
people have check-in privileges? Phillip, you already mentioned that
you're short on time and no one else has responded to a plea for finding
out who has check-in privileges. IIRC, you had previously talked about
coming up with a process to "bless" people but I don't think that went
very far. I'm interested in participating but unsure of how to go
about the process.
