I don't mind what process the group uses to publish, so long as it is  
reasonably lightweight and avoids the case where people have to fight over  
a particular draft since the next chance to provide something to the world  
will be in a year. I note that public editors' drafts are a big help with  
that too, handled sensibly.

Unless there is some kind of signal like "we made a real change here,  
please look at it", there's a problem. I'm can closely follow the issues  
list and review pull requests regularly, where I mean "every six months".  
Otherwise, it is not possible. Knowing the difference between the changes  
people consider important and worthy of close review, vs those that are  
editorial or otherwise minor, is an important guide to enabling review  
that worth the time it took.
