[openstack-dev] [Ironic] documenting our core review team policies

As the title says, I've gone ahead and written up our core review team
policies, and posted it here:


Why now, you may ask?

In the interests of full disclosure, we (the current ironic-core team) had
a private discussion recently about adding a new member to the team. It
went great, but someone felt that we should have the initial discussion
publicly, whereas I believe the initial round of "hey, do you all trust
this human?" discussions should continue to be held in private. This allows
for an actually candid discussion about a person, which is seldom possible
on a mailing list of this size. There's plenty of historical precedent for
this workflow, but it's unreasonable to assume everyone knows the history.
Particularly in light of the recent (and quite valid) "everything should be
in the open" discussions, writing stuff down and being open about our
policies is the right thing to do.


In addition to what our policies and team structure are, I have also
documented, in said wiki, the primary reasoning that I'm going by in
continuing to have a private initial vetting for any core team changes
(basically what I said above). If anyone disagrees, let's discuss our
policies, and any changes to it, here in the open.
