I really don't understand why this is so difficult, nor why progress is
so slow. Code review and regular-ish updates are somethings that *were
happening* just a year or 2 ago. As I pointed out one of the last times
this was discussed, the number of commits has only decreased while
the amount of tech staff has hugely increased, so I don't believe that
"more commits to review" or "lack of resources" (not the same as
"resources not allocated well") are to blame. That discussion was more
than a month ago. What progress has been made since then?
Why does this need some elaborate plan that will take multiple months to
implement? The infrastructure for actually doing code review is already
there; it just needs someone to actually do it.
