I agree with Thierry Carrez , I think this would help.
Along with this, we need to motivate new joiners to continue with openstack.
Most of them leave earlier or participate less due to some demotivating
factors like coding is easy but getting things reviewed is much difficult.
In every group we have aome extra ordinary guys who help new contributors
join and continue with, but some are just enjoying corehood.
May be we should also make core members on rotation basis to give equal
chances to everyone. This will also motivate those who are working for
openstack in their part time.
A lot of other suggestions as well, but mail growing longer..:)
