A simple way to address this would have been to CC Raymond on the issue.
But the reply-to header probably makes that hard. Agreed that post-commit
reviews don't really scale to our size. It's hard to teach old dogs new
tricks though. I now realize that my main point, however, was that Raymond
and Serhiy might have sorted this out offline already without either of
them bothering to CC python-dev on the fix, so perhaps the discussion about
our broken process might well have been premature. Certainly I don't think
automatically rolling back commits is something we should start to do
without a bigger overhaul of our process -- which takes time and may well
already be underway.
