This has come up before, but I think we should put something like this 
in the nova IRC channel topic. Swift has something like this in their 
IRC channel topic and it's very easy for someone new to the channel to 
go in and see what their review priorities are (I'd consider myself a 
new person to Swift). Even if the dashboard above isn't perfect for 
everyone, I think we should start with *something* and this is a good 
start. Plus it doesn't require reviewing it to add it to the channel 
topic, so (minimal) bikeshedding! :)
