In the end the process/tools has to fit the most active commiters, not
non-commiters like me.

Since you are a power-user, know better then I. I am someone
who likes "git send-email" and mailinglists. For me patchwork is more
or less the tool that creates RESTAPI events from a patch-mailinglist
(not in alpine though). I also use GitLab a lot and like it a lot.

I just wanted to say that a minimalistic approach (meaning simple
tools like git send-email + a mailinglist), is liked by a non-commiter
like me and I know commiters in other projects who like it too.

But as I said, the process has to be optimized for the active
commiters. And I guess I am strange and a exception, since I prefer
TUIs to GUIs.
