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

The last time we looked at core reviewer stats was in December [1]. In
looking at the current stats, I'm going to propose some changes to the core
team. Reviews are the most important part of being a core reviewer, so we
need to ensure cores are doing reviews. The stats for the 90 day period [2]
indicate some changes are needed for core reviewers who are no longer
reviewing on pace with the other core reviewers.

First of all, I'm removing Sumit Naiksatam from neutron-core. Sumit has
been a core reviewer for a long time, and his past contributions are very
much thanked by the entire OpenStack Neutron team. If Sumit jumps back in
with thoughtful reviews in the future, we can look at getting him back as a
Neutron core reviewer. But for now, his stats indicate he's not reviewing
at a level consistent with the rest of the Neutron core reviewers.

As part of the change, I'd like to propose Doug Wiegley as a new Neutron
core reviewer. Doug has been actively reviewing code across not only all
the Neutron projects, but also other projects such as infra. His help and
work in the services split in December were the reason we were so
successful in making that happen. Doug has also been instrumental in the
Neutron LBaaS V2 rollout, as well as helping to merge code in the other
neutron service repositories.

I'd also like to take this time to remind everyone that reviewing code is a
responsibility, in Neutron the same as other projects. And core reviewers
are especially beholden to this responsibility. I'd also like to point out
that +1/-1 reviews are very useful, and I encourage everyone to continue
reviewing code even if you are not a core reviewer.

Existing neutron cores, please vote +1/-1 for the addition of Doug to the
core team.
