Well first, what do you mean by code quality? That can mean anything
from "Uses XZY blessed coding style", "Uses AGH technique so that
formal methods can be used to confirm correctness of each routine", to
"Dude, it compiled with ' -Wall -Wextra -pedantic-errors' without any

Other questions that seem to come out of this are:

What coding knowledge must a maintainer have?
What hardware/software/network access must a maintainer have?
