It is unfortunate that we can't get +1's to carry forward but I don't 
think this negates the value of having the priorities.  I have been 
using our review dashboard quite a bit lately and plan to set up 
processes that involve it as we move forward to using/documenting 
Storyboard for Cinder.

  Is there someway that we could allow the owner to reset this priority 
after pushing up a new patch.  That would lower the dependence on the 
cores in that case.

As usual, the biggest problem I am seeing is getting enough people to do 
the reviews and really set up all the priorities appropriately.  There 
are just a couple of us doing it right now. I am hoping to see more 
participation in the coming months to make the output more beneficial 
for all.
