I agree with Tony. There is a reason that the project-specific stable 
maint core team is not the same as a project's regular core team on the 
master branch, and that's because the rules are different for reviews. 
So just because you're the PTL doesn't mean you know the stable branch 
review policy, which is why, generally, we should see more activity in 
reviews on stable branches before granting someone core privileges.

 From the stable team meeting today, it sounds like Rob is doing that, 
which is great. For the time being, the stable-maint-core team can help 
out with approving Horizon backports that have a +2 from the existing 
horizon stable cores that are still active (it sounds like there is some 
attrition which is prompting a lot of this).

Then we can re-assess after the summit.

BTW, this is in no way a knock against Rob, and I apologize if anyone 
feels that way. It's just more about making sure we're comfortable with 
the people that are going to be approving changes that impact stable
