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.

@emacsen @civodul That sounds like something which could work for many.

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... ;)
