In theory this is undoubtedly the case, but in practice I see lots of commits being code-wise evaluated and approved relatively quickly if technically alright, but not carefully judged by their significance.
I guess a good example is the impressively rapid pace of Blender’s Sculpt Mode development. On one hand I welcome this, on the other hand a clutter of tools and functions is forming. The significance of a number of those functions is disputable, especially when placed against UI / UX clarity.
Then there’s the constant shifting of UI elements and keyboard shortcuts. It starts to become a bit tiresome to me. I’d love to see the development pace slow down a little, and focus on quality improvement and feature refinement.
