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

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

#Guix thread:

(HT to zimoun)

@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:

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

@ArneBab @civodul

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 (even when many are 5 — that’s already a lot of potential to get moving).


@be @emacsen @civodul Having a goal what to actually do can help with that.
