Would it not be appropriate to trust the stable cross-project liaison for
heat when he nominates stable cores? Having been the PTL for Ocata and one
who struggled to get the backports on time for a stable release as planned,
I don't recall seeing many reviews from stable maintenance core team for
them to be able to judge the quality of reviews. So I don't think it's fair
to decide eligibility only based on the review numbers and stats.
