After reading the wiki it sounds like we cannot simply add the core team 
as an included group. I would need to request each core team member be 
added individually. Should I make requests for the individuals? Or 
should I wait until after Tokyo when some newer better process may 
emerge for managing the group membership?

My stance is that I want all of the manila core team to be stable 
maintainers too. Having 2 groups is unnecessary bureaucracy. However I'm 
willing to follow the established process if it's working well for 
everyone else.
