The problem is to attract enough contributors so that at some point a 
sufficiently large number of them become "core contributors" who are 
familiar enough with an area of the codebase to review patches.

Of course, this is unlikely to happen as long as everyone is discouraged 
after the first few pull request by a queue of 100 open pull request, 
and so we are back at the start again. ;)
