Perhaps they can start doing reviews?

One could argue that a specific venue is needed for them to review
effectively, as looking at each individual commit being proposed might
not be efficient for folk looking at conceptual review - but thats at
best a hypothesis. If ops focused folk spent an hour a day reviewing
upcoming changes I'm fairly certain they would both be listened to and
eventually earn core wings.
