IMO we need to re-evaluate that requirement. None of us has done a great
job at sustaining it, however as a team we've managed to at least get
enough reviews done to keep the tubes flowing. I know that at one point
we got really backed up, but what solved that was a combination of a few
less patches getting submitted (probably because of the long wait time)
and a few more reviewers being added. So having more good reviewers like
yourself seems more important than having more perfect reviewers.

Also the main reason for wanting people to do 3 per day is to maintain
familiarity with the code. I think you've been able to remain familiar
with your traditional rate just fine.
