I agree with Daan,

Lazy consensus QA is not going to improve code quality. If anything we're highlighting a structural
issue with the amount of resource available to review these PRs - which is a different issue
and would need looking at as such as it is fundamental to our push for improved quality.

​7 days (including weekends even seem short to me. The objective is to make shore all code
is reviewed!​

​The idea is that committers do wait on others. Reviews are required for a reason. A merge
commit can easily be reverted as well. Not related to this discussion.

​No one is expected to work in their free time. I know a lot of us do but I would say we
do most work in sponsored time.
