Could it be because most patches are posted in trac now? I'm not sure
it's the only reason, though those are pretty much invisible to people
not involved directly in the issue.

(I know there are issues with mailing list reviews too, just trying to
analyze the situation here)

I wonder if that kind of discussion could be had on the mailing list
rather than in meetings. It's problematic to find a time that works
for everyone and many people just doesn't have time to spend in irc.

I couldn't agree more.
