Technical solutions to social problems rarely do more than increase
complexity for everyone involved. Communication, documentation and
education are likely our best options here, but I still question the
degree to which the people pushing these sorts of contributions will
actually get the message since it's obvious they aren't engaging
meaningfully with the community before attempting to contribute.

Could demographic profiling help us figure out the primary
motivation (whether it's testing the waters, stats padding or
employers pushing their staff to contribute patches before they've
had time to actually assimilate our community norms and
