Hm, lack of reviewers is a universal problem, but also lack of reviewers
who are also comitters. A lot of patches are simply applied without
review by maintainers who know what they are doing, and that is what
one has to do when the community isn't big enough.

In the Linux DRM community we solved it by liberally handing out
commit access. It works there.

I'm pretty sure I can handle commit access but I have no idea how that
is handled out in the OpenWrt community. Some level of trust I suppose.
