Planet is a very, very bad example - few if any of its problems stem from
distributed revision control. Scott and I were far more responsive to merge
requests and so on before we started working for Canonical. Planet has gone
by the wayside since then. It has actually become something of a joke - if
either of us spend time on Planet, it will indicate that we are not being
worked to the bone. :-)
