Echoing Rekardo, I still check each commit as I git pull but I'm not
able to keep up with all of guix-devel, guix-help and bugs-guix anymore.
I currently have about 3000 unread emails in my combo
guix-devel/bugs-guix folder that I keep as a todo list of sorts of
patches to check or bugs to follow-up on. I feel overwhelmed by the
sheer number of emails and I feel guilty about not reviewing more
patches and bugs.
