we do not provide access within our infrastructure. Eventually via
external hosters from time to time but I'd rather provide msdn
licenses to developers for testing/devs instead of providing many VMs.
And that's what we do, easier for everyone, works with linux, mac or
windows hosts (laptop or whatever)

it does, as stated numerous time in the list. And PRs/Patches will be
reviewed. We only won't use rmtools build parts for pecl snapshot or
release builds in the mid term, especially as it was a hack to help
windows users to get DLLs for releases. See my other replies for the
explanation (and sorry that you will have to go through bad replies to
get that info).
