+1 to Ollie from me.

+1 to John's points.   If a company is colluding with other core 
members, from the same company, to do bad things within a project, it 
should become pretty obvious at some point and the project's community 
should take action.   If someone is putting in an extra effort to 
provide quality code and reviews on a regular basis, then why wouldn't 
we want that person on the team?  Besides, being a core member really 
just means that you are required to do reviews and help out with the 
community.  You do get some gerrit privileges for reviews, but that's 
about it.   I for one think that we absolutely can use more core members 
to help out with reviews during the milestone deadlines :)
