I'm proposing that we add Stephen Finucane to the nova-core team. 
Stephen has been involved with nova for at least around a year now, 
maybe longer, my ability to tell time in nova has gotten fuzzy over the 
years. Regardless, he's always been eager to contribute and over the 
last several months has done a lot of reviews, as can be seen here:



Stephen has been a main contributor and mover for the config option 
cleanup series that last few cycles, and he's a go-to person for a lot 
of the NFV/performance features in Nova like NUMA, CPU pinning, huge 
pages, etc.

I think Stephen does quality reviews, leaves thoughtful comments, knows 
when to hold a +1 for a patch that needs work, and when to hold a -1 
from a patch that just has some nits, and helps others in the project 
move their changes forward, which are all qualities I look for in a 
nova-core member.

I'd like to see Stephen get a bit more vocal / visible, but we all 
handle that differently and I think it's something Stephen can grow into 
the more involved he is.

So with all that said, I need a vote from the core team on this 
nomination. I honestly don't care to look up the rules too much on 
number of votes or timeline, I think it's pretty obvious once the 
replies roll in which way this goes.
