fwiw, I just wanted to mention something about RFC 9.
The thing with software development is maintanance and therefore
experience. I'm not talking about experience in the sense of being
qualified -- that's a given. What I mean is that, somebody works on an
area, they're going to increase their experience of it, and that's where
the long-term value lies. Once you "GDAL-ify" a person, that's valuable.
And you want to reduce the time it takes to GDAL-ify people whenever
Responsibility #3 is there, but I'm saying, maybe that should be
mandatory when doing any source code work. Of course, a lot of devs hate
writing docs (I even met some who deliberately didn't do it because they
were trying to make their clients more dependant on them), so you might
want to qualify based on that metric.
