Subject Re: Shepherding new contributions

+1, I was thinking about this over the weekend.

Mesos has recently been discussing adding MAINTAINERS files across the code
to document who should be informed about changes within. I'm not sure
Aurora is ready to go that far since generally it will either include all
active committers or result in a subset of committers being on the hook for
all reviews from first time contributors.

Establishing Shepherds seems like a good compromise.
