Not at all. One of the best ways to become "known" within the
community is to review code and provide good recommendations. Even
something as simple as spotting typographical errors in changes to
user-facing messages and documentation provides value. The more
problems you can find (and ultimately help prevent) in a change, the
faster your reputation will grow.

As has been said many times already, OpenStack does not lack
developers... it lacks reviewers.
