We've all been frustrated at times by our patches seemingly disappearing (and occasionally, really disappearing) while they were processed by the OTP team. The github process supports further acceleration of contributions and allows open and frank discussion of the merits. I'm not anticipating that all patch authors are going to be happy all the time, so I expect some robust discussion about this on-list as well over the coming years, but this is healthy and hopefully invigorating.
