Although everyone is encouraged to review patches and add their
Reviewed-by reply for a patch, with the Package Reviewer role we
identify additional community members that will be Cc'd for patches
made to a package.

A distinction between a Package Maintainer and Reviewer is that
Maintainers will always have source control push access to the package
whereas Reviewers will not. (The Reviewer may have push access if they
are also Package Maintainer for another package.)

Currently we have an limit of 2 Package Maintainers per package, but
the Package Maintainers for each package decide how to manage the
Package Reviewer list.
