Submissions to guix-patches keep increasing, but the rate at which they’re closed doesn’t quite keep up:
debbugs.gnu.org/rrd/guix-patch (see “All bugs ever opened”)

How do #FreeSoftware projects encourage committers to review? Any insight to share?

#Guix thread: lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui

@civodul The only direct help I know is to delegate to the CI as much as possible.

Having some feeling of friendship or kinship helps. It’s not just a common goal, it’s a group of people who like each other and feel that the review helps the others, too.

Other than that, and rather experimental: Aligning messaging to the core drivers of as many people as possible: 1w6.org/english/tables#org4edf

If you feel that reviewing supports something that gives you strength, that helps to become stronger.

I know the guix community is small, but what about an event, like a "Bug-A-Thon" where you all collectively get together and squash bugs, and maybe use that time to help do some bug motioning and other changes that would help the situation longer term.

In OSM-world we used to have OSM meetups in London. I went to London a few times and hacked on various things. It was fun and we got a lot done.

I did the same once in that town in Germany named after the map projection... ;)
