It'll still take two +2 to push a patch in, and the oversight from more
seasoned stable reviewers is still there to assist more inexperienced ones.
Aside from the occasional lag, I don't believe that backports linger as
much as they used to, but with the help of the dashboard and the initiative
of the individual project maintainers velocity should increase. To be
honest, I am not sure why we didn't do that before, similar review rights
apply to things like specs reviews and neutron-lib changes. As for your
concern about people stepping out of their own turf, I honestly don't
believe that's a problem in reality, and even if it was, I always encourage
people to reach out on IRC or other means.
I don't have admin rights to the neutron-stable-maint team, fo that someone
has to nudge Ihar :)
