What's up with legal review lately having so
many stale submit requests?
This is not something that happened "lately", this is going on basically
since introduction of GDPR and SUSE being an independent business eat a lot
of "legal time".
We suffer from the same impact also on SUSE products, it's not an openSUSE
specific problem - openSUSE Factory specifically just has a much higher
rate of new packages than other projects (arguably because a lot of said
packages then come from Factory).
So I propose to turn the legal default to accepted for Factory. This means
packages get accepted on probation and if the lawyers later find the package
not acceptable for openSUSE distribution, we'll fix it (in doubt by
removing it altogether).
Another issue is that the package maintainers are not notified when the legal
bot finds something worth mentioning and also don't know what it is unless
poking people who have access to these reports.
