A problem I noticed a number of times is that an Asia based developer will post to the mailing list to get some attention for  his/her patch.  This is frowned upon in the community, but when there are few to no Core Reviewers in IRC, getting that first core review can be difficult.  Emailing the PTL is something I’m sure the PTLs would like to limit as they are already swamped.  So, how do we get timely first core review of patches in areas of the world where Core presence in IRC is slim to none?

Yes thanks Ramy. That's exactly what this dashboard helps with and has existed
since January. I brought it up at the Cinder midcycle meetup, multiple times in
meetings, reviewathons, etc. I was letting it sit and have people try it out
before proposing to see if anyone had feedback. Since it has been sitting for
a while without feedback, I'll go ahead and propose it.
