As with a any good design, please first define the problems you want to
I'm really having hard times finding major problems with SBo, both as a
maintainer and user.
As long as the maintainer is in the position of taking the final
decision, there is not much to do. And I prefer that it stays this way,
i.e. the maintainer decides.
There is room for improvement, maintainers responsiveness might be one
of them. So, if that's the problem, try finding a way how to change it.
But in that case, it might require changing of the policy.
