Semi-related, as plugin developers please review pull requests, especially to the API, but also to SC/SF/SV if you are willing and have the knowledge. It is hard to know what to change without feedback and it is better to change things before they are merged into the API. The more people who review and check out pull requests, there is a lower chance of bugs and other issues being introduced into production branches. In your review for pull requests, consider throwing your use case as well, if you have one, for the changes as it can provide examples for others of why this is useful/important, act as a possible avenue of testing for the PR creator, and maybe even provide some motivation for the creator as well.
If you want to help out even more, testing the changes locally is a great way to help a contributor finish their PR and get it ready to merged. If you need the new API for something in your plugin, you could even make a special version and test it against the changes to see if all works properly in-game and that you like the API.
As a whole, this can help pull requests be completed much quicker and as a result, possibly merged into bleeding faster as well.
