This started as a joke. Please don't pick-up the joke, and make it a
serious proposal. This isn't funny anymore.

Obviously, Monty isn't interested (otherwise, he would have help with
https://review.openstack.org/#/c/264726/, which he didn't despite his
generous offer to do so in Tokyo but he had other priorities).

Also again, please have a look at the openstack-pkg-tools Git history here:

There's at least 3 commits a week on this repository.

Now, compare this to the single commit to add a .gitreview file from Monty:

That's also a commit on the Liberty branch, and we've switched to
debian/mitaka a long time ago.

I know we have established governance rules. They exist for a reason.
Though I hope everyone understand what happened after my explanation.

I believe what you wanted to write is:

"If we don't think first and follow the rules without even trying to
understand, we *WOULD* reject. But we are humans with brains, not
machines, therefore, it's ok"

Because *you do* have a choice, don't you?
