We've discussed in the past the possibility of moving to a public development repository
where all of us can create commit requests, but at the time you expressed concerns with that model. 

Hi Elias:

I'm absolutely sure that your intentions are sincere but “the road to hell is paved with…”

However IMHO it is absolutely required that there be a gatekeeper mechanism.
“where all of us can create commit requests” is definitely not it - no matter how well intentioned.

For GNU APL the gatekeeper should be Jürgen and only him.
There may come a time when he relinquishes that role but when that happens he may choose to 
pass the baton to someone else.

At present the burden is not onerous - there are infrequent spasms of activity; but by and large
the code is pretty well baked right now.

As the saying goes “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it."
