Some development does happen behind closed doors. Someone sends me a
patch, I commit it, and then point them towards reviewboard for the
next time. Ditto with bugs actually. I get reports via IRC, emails,
Google+ and even FB (once). If it is minor I act on it, if it isn't I
point the user towards bugzilla or just file a bug myself so that I
don't forget.
