If we do code review, which I highly recommend we do, because it increases
the code quality, it could be a matter of process instead of a matter of

Github allows you to add developers to commit to one repository, so I'm
assuming those developers can also approve pull requests. If so, we could
all have write permissions to the master repository, yet we don't approve
our own changes, instead we ask some one else to review them. If no one is
available for more than a set of days, we carefully auto aprove a request.

That's what Qt does, but they use Gerrit instead.
