[openstack-dev] [neutron] Changes to the core team

Assuming I still have a vote, I vote +1 for adding Henry and Kevin, both 
of whom I am confident will do a great job as core reviewer.

I'd ask people to consider voting against dropping me from core (and I 
vote -1 on that if I get a vote). During Juno, my plan was to balance my 
time between neutron core work and implementing GBP as part of neutron. 
Unfortunately, that did not go as planned, and the Juno GBP work has 
continued outside neutron, requiring most of my attention, and leaving 
little time for neutron work. I've felt that it would be irresponsible 
to do drive-by reviews in neutron while this is the case, so had pretty 
much stopped doing neutron reviews until the point when I could devote 
enough attention to follow through on the patches that I review.  But 
I've continued to participate in other ways, including co-leading the 
ML2 sub team. The Juno GBP work is just about complete, and I have 
agreement from my management to make neutron work my top priority for 
the remainder of Kilo. So, as core or not, I expect to be ramping my 
neutron reviewing back up very quickly, and plan to be in SLC next week 
for the mid cycle meetup. If you agree that my contributions as a core 
reviewer have been worthwhile over the long term, and trust that I will 
do as I say and make core reviews my top priority for the remainder of 
Kilo, I ask that you vote -1 on dropping me. If I am not dropped and my 
stats don't improve significantly in the next 30 days, I'll happily 
resign from core.

Regarding dropping Nachi, I will pass, as I've not been paying enough 
attention to the reviews to judge his recent level of contribution.
