Back to the topic of nitpicking!

I virtually sat down with Doug today and we hammered out the positive
aspects that we feel like are the things that we as a community want
to see as part of reviews coming out of this effort. The principles
change[1] in governance has been updated as a result.

I think we are at a point where we have to state high level
principles, and then also update guidelines or other context providing
documentation to re-enforce some of items covered in this
discussion... not just to educate new contributors, but to serve as a
checkpoint for existing reviewers when making the decision as to how
to vote change set. The question then becomes where would such
guidelines or documentation best fit? Should we explicitly detail the
cause/effect that occurs? Should we convey contributor perceptions, or
maybe even just link to this thread as there has been a massive amount
of feedback raising valid cases, points, and frustrations.

Personally, I'd lean towards a blended approach, but the question of
where is one I'm unsure of. Thoughts?
