Well if the Rockbox project wants to be serious about soliciting
contributions from outside
the core team it is a problem. The current method of sitting in IRC
and badgering developers
and hoping you'll get lucky in getting a review/commit is obviously
not sustainable.

I suspect it's not something that will be resolved in the current
release cycle though!

I shall attempt to do my bit over the weekend and work through the bug
queue rather than
pimping feature patches.
