I'm not sure I follow. I review patches when I get the time, but I
figure on at least 20 minutes -- read the issue, check out HEAD, apply
the patch, create a new database, install the test site,
download/install devel, generate stuff, see if the patch works as
advertised, post my review. If I have a recent enough HEAD install I
figure I can skip the database bit and just use my existing database,
but it's still a decent chunk of time. What am I doing wrong?
