A simple solution would be to

- the INRIA publish a list of tasks/directions of work
- accept submission of modification (patch + explaination) with the 
following process:
1) do a first referee by one or two persons not from the INRIA team (the 
referee does not accept in general the modification if it is not a bug 
fix or if it does not obey the tast/direction of work)
2) do a beta release of the change (via the public cvs distribution)
3) And finially after a trial period, the OCaml team accept the change 
which is commited to the main OCaml version.

Clearly the modification by the INRIA team themselves could skip step 1)

This would not require much work from INRIA since the CVS version 
allready exists and the CAML team follows allready the above rule !

The only modification is to choose and allow cvs write to the referees.
