If people are still wrangling over the design, I'd say two weeks is
a ludicrously short time, not a long one.

Your non-involvement in the first half or more--I'd say maybe 3 weeks
or so--is precisely what commitfests are for.  The point is that
people who are *not* committers need to do a bunch of QA on patches,
review them, get or create new patches as needed.  Only then should a
committer get involved.

Cheers,
David.
