[openstack-dev] [TripleO][reviews] We're falling behind

TripleO has just seen an influx of new contributors. \o/. Flip side -
we're now slipping on reviews /o\.

In the meeting today we had basically two answers: more cores, and
more work by cores.

We're slipping by 2 reviews a day, which given 16 cores is a small amount.

I'm going to propose some changes to core in the next couple of days -
I need to go and re-read a bunch of reviews first - but, right now we
don't have a hard lower bound on the number of reviews we request
cores commit to (on average).

We're seeing 39/day from the 16 cores - which isn't enough as we're
falling behind. Thats 2.5 or so. So - I'd like to ask all cores to
commit to doing 3 reviews a day, across all of tripleo (e.g. if your
favourite stuff is all reviewed, find two new things to review even if
outside comfort zone :)).

And we always need more cores - so if you're not a core, this proposal
implies that we'll be asking that you a) demonstrate you can sustain 3
reviews a day on average as part of stepping up, and b) be willing to
commit to that.

Obviously if we have enough cores we can lower the minimum commitment
- so I don't think this figure should be fixed in stone.

And now - time for a loose vote - who (who is a tripleo core today)
supports / disagrees with this proposal - lets get some consensus

I'm in favour, obviously :), though it is hard to put reviews ahead of
direct itch scratching, its the only way to scale the project.
