I am happy to be free from contrib as of now --  it's hard enough to get reviewers on a core patch and totally impossible to get them on contrib and I can't work like that. Lack of peer review also makes sloppy code. After this foray into contrib, I can now see this and know that contrib code has the quality it has not because the code writers suck but because there is no review. Ah well.
Oh yea. There's just too much code in contrib to get proper review, and 
with some exceptions, contrib just isn't important enough to merit that 
kind of effort. Without a team dedicated to a project, it just won't 
happen in contrib.
