Patch Pilots

We’ve just started a patch pilot project in Bazaar, to make sure that patches aren’t lost in the noise, or stalled waiting for cleanups or tests to be added. In particular, we care a lot about testing for Bazaar, and testing well, but adding good tests can be harder than just making a two-line change that seems to fix the problem.

Andrew’s just finished the first stint as pilot, with good results: several patches landed, and people apparently having an easier time getting them.

I wonder how it will go? Will we keep finding the time to prioritize pilotage, and will there be positive feedback from contributors?
