Sounds like a good idea.  Andy obviously does amazing work and I'm sure
I'm not the only one who's grateful for your contributions as well :-)
but having even some small patches for obvious bugfixes sit around for
months is a bit disheartening.

I won't apply because I don't feel like I'd be up to the task on a
technical level (my C skills in particular suck, my knowledge of Guile
internals is also quite limited) and I have way too many unfinished
projects plus a somewhat stressful 40h/week job...

But I would definitely like to contribute some small patches every now
and then if I know I'll get feedback / have them applied.
