I have suggested a procedure in the past, which never has been executed
so far. I promise that I will stick to it if somebody actually executes
it. Here it goes:
- For every patch you want to get reviewed, review 10 (ten) other
patches. A review should explain what kind of analysis was performed
(code inspection, testing on platform X, etc), and it should include
a recommendation for acceptance, rejection, or modification. If a
patch already has a suggestion of modification, which was unanswered
for some time, either post the modification yourself, or suggest
rejection of the patch.
- Post your reviews to the relevant patches.
- Post a summary of the patches reviewed, including the patch number
and review recommendation, to python-dev, along with the patch you
want reviewed in turn.
Notice that a review at this point may conclude with "acceptable for
2.5", which means that we need to go back to the patch after 2.4 has
