Right, that's why I said we probably should have another discussion
about how the "guide bugs with patches towards sponsorship" process (aka
lucid-qa-fixing-bugs-with-patches) should entail.

I'm not sure I understand. Can you explain what do you mean by
"motivation/get things stuck problem"?

Let me recap: we have lots of bugs with patches attached that are
supposed to fix problems, we don't have enough people to review all of
them, we probably will never get down to zero. How exactly will it help
if we'd ask patch contributors to go to queue A if they're interested in
contributing more closely to Ubuntu Development and if not, go to queue B?

Have a great day,
