I'm not sure this is completely related, but I recently posted a number of
"unsolicited contributions" to RT, and I had another one that's been in
RT for over a year now (#5667)--it now predates several recent strategic changes.
I think an even more critical reason than 'good will' to review
contributions there is that it's a cheap way to identify code

We at have run a patched MIT k5 since it was first rolled out,
in 2000.  There is definite interest here in not running those patches,
and that means finding a way for equivalents to those patches to be in
MIT.  Now, a lot of those patches aren't needed anymore; we had a lot of
changes to maintain better continuity with kaserver and K4; we no longer
care about those.  Also it looks like MIT is finally making a significant
effort to support nearly realtime incremental replication which removes
the need for our largest single change.  That still leaves a number of
patches, of varying importance and size, that need to be resolved.
