Submissions to guix-patches keep increasing, but the rate at which they’re closed doesn’t quite keep up:

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

@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: https://www.1w6.org/english/tables#org4edffdc
If you feel that reviewing supports something that gives you strength, that helps to become stronger.
