*tl;dr* Sounds good, when can we start?
Thank you for picking up on this topic, I believe this is really important!
The way we reach decisions - or don't - has a major impact on the culture
of our project. And the culture has a major impact on the happiness and
health of the community. As a newcomer to LLVM I find it hard to understand
how I can get an agreement on a particular topic affecting many people
(pre-merge testing in my case).
For me it's important to have a way of getting a timely decision on a
topic. How we do that in detail is less important to me. I'm also a big fan
of continuous improvement and the Swift approach sounds reasonable. So
let's start with that and then iterate/adapt if we see the need to do so.
