Really sad to see Winston go as he's been a long time member, but I think over
the last several releases it's been obvious he's had other priorities to
compete with. It would be great if that were to change some day. He's made a
lot of great contributions to Cinder over the years.

I'm a little reluctant to make any changes with John though. We've spoken
briefly. He definitely is off to other things now, but with how deeply he has
been involved up until recently with things like the multiattach
implementation, replication, and other significant things, I would much rather
have him around but less active than completely gone. Having a few good reviews
is worth a lot.

I would propose we hold off on changing John's status for at least a cycle. He
has indicated to me he would be willing to devote a little time to still doing
reviews as his time allows, and I would hate to lose out on his expertise on
changes to some things. Maybe we can give it a little more time and see if his
other demands keep him too busy to participate and reevaluate later?
