With our team-centric view of community, I don't think it's reasonable
to ask a project team to vouch for code they are not comfortable with
(whatever the reason). At the same time I think we need to find a way to
consider vendor driver development part of OpenStack, without
compromising on our open collaboration principles.

So I think the right trade-off is to recognize that driver teams are
separate beasts, with a narrow scope (implementing an interface designed
by another OpenStack project) and relaxed open collaboration rules...
