Probably, but I'm in a holding pattern until the Filesystem TS vote closes
January 20th, and the committee finishes ballot resolution at the February
meeting. Then I'll start integrating changes, quite a few of which are
already done and just waiting for the final vote.

What would help the most is test cases that detect problems. Git also helps
in that branches can be started for bugs without blocking progress while
more information is requested from submitters. My limited experience with
GitHub's pull request system has so far been positive.
