I agree with Joel here, but like to provide one addition: Aiming to communicate
about changes earlier is of course still a worthwhile goal. If you want to
improve the situation here e.g. by watching the commit stream, asking commiters
for more details about their changes etc. -- that would be a most valuable
contribution, if those results are then published in a more accessable form (on
a blog for example). For starters it might make sense to focus on one specific
application for that (say: Calc or Writer).

Unlike asking others to contribute differently, such work would indeed likely
be much appreciated by all parties involved.
