Subject Re: code review

+1 on asking people to help with the reviews. I believe we do this today
already, right?

Now, there is a line we shouldn't cross, and that is the idea of having
"maintainers" or "owners" of different parts of the code base. The code
is in whole owned by the community, and every committer should feel free
to commit to all parts of the code base. In fact, it is beneficial for
community health to review outside of our usual area of expertise, to
make sure that the code as a whole is most broadly understood.

Makes sense?
