The Submissions repository seems like it might be an extra step which is
not entirely necessary... we already have these changes stored in the
old update stream, or on Mantis, etc.

It seems more relevant as a possibly new fix/enh submissions process,
which is currently done in Mantis, and is partly/mostly handled by the
Janitors group.  You might want to bring up the idea on that list,
although I guess it's worth pondering here for a bit.

One upside to the Submissions repository is that the UI is available in
Squeak via MC, whereas Mantis changesets are not.  I guess one
possibility is still using Mantis to track bugs & fixes, but posting the
code in the Submissions repository instead of to Mantis.  One downside
is that the repository could easily get cluttered with hundreds of
unordered submissions.
