OK - that was probably my frustration boiling over at the time. I should
not have made that generalization. I had been involved in 3 patches to
olso repos in the last week, and 2 got -2'd, and that came out unfairly
in this message.

The initial -2s where not as annoying as the stickyness of them. When
the issues that led to the -2's were fixed, they were not moved to -1.

I see -2's as vetos - if I am mistaken please tell me, but that is how
most of the openstack projectsm and other projects using gerrit seem
to have treated them.

Did that. And on the review itself.
