With my experience of the last few days walking in Steve's shoes, I don't think it is that
simple. Granted, we have done a fair amount of thrashing on the voting process. But I also
think the following are also at play:
1) the release process (getting the content ready for a vote) still takes a fair amount of
effort. IMHO, having so many separate repos contributes to the cost here. The scripts and
docs help a lot, but still room for improvement.
2) we don't have great discipline of testing as we go (automatic + manual + native), so there
is test debt that collects that needs to be cleared at the end.
3) there's not a driving sense of urgency to do more frequent releases with less content.
4) it's maturing from a functional perspective, so there are fewer big-ticket items going
in.

#1, 2, and 3 can be improved, and I think that should help increase the velocity.
