I like the idea, and curious whether it wouldn't solve your #10 problem.
"Sure, I didn't do a lot, but I WON" type of thing. Solves the imposture
problem in an interesting way. I don't think that we need Vegas quality
randomization, I think the RAND() function from somone's spreadsheet
would be totally adequate :-)
The randomization is pretty straight-forward.
Something like a ticket drawing system, where the number of tickets is
equal to the person's number of commits.
I'm sure we can find a website to do it for us btw.
