OK, got it.  So, success critically depends on nova-core being willing
to take review direction and priority setting from nova-drivers.  That
sort of assumption is part of why I think agile processes typically
don't work in open source.  We don't have the ability to direct people
with consistent and reliable results.

I'm afraid if people doing the review are not directly involved in at
least ACKing the selection and commiting to review something, putting
stuff in slots seems futile.
