And I had the impression the serious reviews were done and fine;
the only issue would be demonstrating its working fine with other
series, where I was also worrying about conflicts with
brians series. And to address that, I'd just send series in small sizes.

Is there anything that a contributor can help with that eases
refactoring series in flight?

Personally I find these refactorings not as rewarding as new
features or fixing bugs, and additionally the risk of conflict
rises, whereby the maintainer is likely to push back to the contributor
to "please rebase", and rebasing with just textual conflicts is also
not rewarding.

Is there anything process wise that we can do to make refactoring
easier for contributors?

Sorry for the miscommunication, though,

Thanks,
Stefan
