the development coordination.

* Onboarding

   + regular devs should try to give possibility to update proposed patch

   + devs can contact Nathan if they don’t have time to manage closely

      patch review process for code by new devs (i.e. may require lots

      of going back and forth between contributor and dev)

      do own work
