I am personally -1 on Padraig and Vish, especially Padraig. As one of
the coreutils maintainers - his contribution to Nova is invaluable
regardless whatever metrics you apply to his reviews makes him appear on
this list (hint - quality should really be the only one). Removing him
from core will probably not affect that, but I personally definitely
trust him to not vote +2 on the stuff he is not in touch with, and view
his +2 when I see them as a sign of thorough reviews. Also he has not
exactly been inactive lately by any measure.

Vish has not been active for some time now, but he is on IRC and in the
community still (as opposed to Chris for example), so not sure why do
this now.
