Well, part of the hypothesis of the effects of moving to Github is that a)
the clear separation between "core contributor" and "random contributor"
because a bit more subtle, b) it becomes easier for external contributors to
contribute. So yeah, I guess it is, but it'd be cool if it became a bit more
open to contributions from the more general public :)
