Kind of you Sean. ;) That said, we are not here to make my job easier but to make our product better.

Another point I want to make is that the original plan is described in terms of me doing the initial triage. I don’t want to suggest that I am the eternal one to do it. No, I am not suicidal, but buses drive nearby, so I would be glad if someone tries to take on it once in a while. ;)

Another point to consider is that backport proposers do not have +2 for their own backports (well technically they do but it’s countradictory to openstack guidelines). Since I am one of the folks who have +2 in neutron stable stadium, it could be wise to allow someone without the hammer to propose backports and me spending my vote on them. So if folks out of formal neutron-stable-maint group will join the effort, it will be better for everyone, but especially stable branch chasers.
