Have you chaps considered a simple points system? Every patch would need 
  five minutes attention to triage it into one of: small (1 point), 
medium (2), large (10), huge (50 points - Sync Repl etc). First CF gets 
(say) 200 points, next 150, next 100, next 75. First-come, first-served 
- if your patch goes over the limit it goes in the next commit-fest.
