Good point - I previously suggested to Ian to instead put these into a
section of the overall developer guide, about how to get changes into
Bazaar.  If people really feel it ought to be separate I'm open to it,
but the HACKING document last I look did already talk about processes
as well as code.

I don't want to overemphasize "these people are the core and everyone
else isn't" - and indeed people who you might not call "core"
sometimes do very useful reviews for example.
