+1 to Doug’s addition.  He’s been a workhorse in moving lbaas and the services split forward and his being able to finally merge code in the main repo should be a boon to our merge velocity.

Many thanks to Sumit for his long-serving dedication as a core reviewer.  I hope to see him return to the fold soon!

> 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.
