Since there's been no progress on this I propose Spectacle be now
For new patches: post patches on ReviewBoard or Phabricator, if no one
specifically vetoes it in 3 days push it. Subscribe me to the RR
For new features, general direction of project, architecture overhauls
etc - I no longer act as an authority, only a reference. You're
welcome to ask for my inputs, but you no longer have to even take them
Hopefully, this'll let others add features or fix bugs without waiting on me.
