Ohh yeah one other thing I forgot. We're voting on changes based upon
the change on trunk. Problem is people look at the diff on trunk and
then vote on that. Then when we go to merge we run into situations
where other changes that were necessary didn't get nominated, which
means we're looking for people to review them at the last minute. This
can't be good for quality.
