That's unsurprising, given how that linking scheme is used everywhere,
but they responded quickly.

I've sent them suggestions on improving the review system, and they
have acknowledged working on that, but it's a behind closed doors
development process without any pre-announcement or commitment.

Another popular request is for projects like GHC or similar (that have
their own or different infrastructure for discussion and
contributions) to want to disable Pull-Requests (like Wiki or Issues).
They say it's often requested but have no immediate plans to add a
check box. It's unfortunate because you have to constantly close pull
requests with a link to the contributing guide.
