If you've looked at some of the past issues, you may have seen that
we've had some healthy discussions. Not all are resolved, clearly.

Per the README [0]: "The pymarc developers encourage you to join the
pymarc Google Group [1] if you need help.  Also, please feel free to
use issue tracking [2] on Github to to submit feature requests or bug
reports. If you've got an itch to scratch, please scratch it, and send
merge requests on Github [3]."
