What are some pointers for managing repositories?

Take a look, for example, at the youtube-dl repository. Now, compare that to the Tildes repository.

youtube-dl, currently, has 2,667 issues and 584 pull requests!

How in the heck would the developers, directly involved with that repository, get organized enough to handle all of that?

    I'm definitely biased here, but this is where a product manager comes in (I'm a product manager). As the product manager, I help decide what is the next thing the developers should focus on. It helps to have a clear idea of what the product is and what it is not. The longer a product is around the more great ideas and issues come up, and in order to keep that backlog organized someone needs to start saying no to certain things.

    I haven't worked on an open source library like the ones you mentioned, but at a certain size I think I would take the same approach.
