You can also make this process faster by joining the team and giving them a hand remember what volunteer work means Christian. You’ve been in the team already why did you left?
More people is a
solution, but not sustainable long-term. I left the styles team because I found the work boring and mundane. There was no fulfilment in checking file diffs to see if they matched the prosilver updates between releases. The things I enjoy the most here are helping people fix bugs and helping newbies learn new skills. Although there were never prescribed quotas, deadlines or such like, I felt like being on the phpBB team was a perpetual chore. There was no satisfaction of finishing one task and starting the next. The conveyer belt of styles never stops coming, the unfinished projects never stop etc etc. I realise that these things are probably contributing to slow validation and a slow adoption of new people joining CDB team.

I'm currently reviewing the process and making adjustments to help improve the process based on some of the feedback given here. However "trusted updates" is not something I'm going to entertain at this time.
Sounds good. I'm not emotionally attached to the concept of trusted updates (however sound the idea is), just as long as we can reduce validation times to something sensible and frictionless. Are you able to share any high-level concepts at this stage? Any ballpark figures as to how quickly you'd like to see updates progress from submission to validation?
