  By "average", do you mean that you have taken records of many different
patch submissions from many different "outsiders", measured the durations of
the process from initial submission up to being committed into the repository,
and calculated the average duration of the distribution?  If so, which kind,
mean or median?  And what was the sample size?  Did you use any kind of
weighting to adjust for the size and complexity of the patch, or did you rate
all patches equally?  What basis did you use to decide who counts as an
outsider, and who does not? Is your methodology documented?

  Or do you mean something else?

    cheers,
