Which actually illustrates my point: there's dad and mom and revu and
wiki and launchpad and a number of other ad hoc services only known to
the especially initiated developers and some which duplicate functions
of others.

Even though I am not a great fan of LP, it would make sense to transfer
the task of at least some of the "ad-hoc sites" to there. For example,
when generating the list of packages that need merging, it should *in
principle* be possible to report these *automatically* as "Please-merge"
bugs in LP, so the workflow could pivot around that. That would get rid
of mom and dad for starters.

I realize that the workflow has probably evolved slowly along with the
MOTU population, but take this as a "fresh look" at the process. It
needs to be revised IMHO.
