As you've no doubt read elsewhere on the ML, we've lost several glance
cores recently due to employment changes.  Luckily, Mike Fedosin
informed me at today's Glance weekly meeting that he will have time
for the next few months to devote some time to Glance reviewing.

For those who don't know Mike (mfedosin on IRC), he was a Glance core
for several years.  He provided a lot of notes that were used to write
the Glance architecture documentation that is so helpful to new
contributors, so he's extremely knowledgeable about the design
patterns used in Glance.

Most recently, Mike's been working on the Glare project, which has a
lot in common with Glance.  While Mike says he can't commit much time
to Glance development, he has proposed porting some of the Glare tests
over to Glance, which will certainly help with our code coverage, and
would be a helpful addition to Glance.

(Mike agreed at today's Glance meeting not to propose re-integrating
Glare into the Glance project until the Queens PTG (if at all), so I'm
not worried about that being a distraction during the Pike cycle when
we are so short-handed.)

I'd like to reinstate Mike as a Glance core contributor at the next
Glance weekly meeting.  Please reply to this message with any comments
or concerns before 23:59 UTC on Wednesday 31 May 2017.
