bitcoin core code contributors need to step up their game on patch quality. There's a reason linux has such strict standards for patches. They're constrained by reviewers, not coders. Smaller, more logical patches with detailed descriptions is going to become more and more important going forward.

So many PRs have commits with no descriptions in them. I'm looking at right now. how do you even review this, there's no explanation at all, just vague descriptions.

@jb55 Right, first it was and splitting off, now has added his hat into the ring, with another fork proposal. So there will be three different going. And it looks like they won't enable replay protection, which means exchanges won't want to touch it, among other things. Its been hilarious to watch.
