While I sympathize with what you're saying, this sounds kind of
orthogonal to me. Sure, we can do better at handling contributions. But
it's an opensource project, everybody does whatever he wants mostly (in
the frame that the project sets).

Saying to Laurens that we have limited "resources" and that he should do
something else doesn't mean that this second task will be done. But it
surely means that first one won't.
