If I had a magic wand, I would use it to find all of the -1 reviews
in gerrit for typos, wording clarifications, markup corrections,
variable naming disagreements, and other minor issues and turn them
into +1/+2 votes with a follow-up patch from the reviewer to fix
the problems.

I think this one small change would transform our review culture
from one of "seeking perfection in others" to "helping each other
find perfection together", and the result would make us more welcoming
to contributors of all types.
