I have historically always appreciated the two-company approval rule
because it ensures each patch has been reviewed with at least two
different and diverse company perspectives.
However I recognize that the situation has changed over time and we may
not have the luxury any longer to ensure diverse company approvals. I do
not wish to overburden the remaining non Red Hat cores with review
requests for approvals.
So, given the evolved landscape, I am understanding and open to adapt
our process to drop the two-company rule if there is such consensus in
the rest of the team.
