Jan, Jordan, Martyn, Jiri and Jaromir are still actively contributing
to TripleO and OpenStack, but I don't think they are tracking /
engaging in the code review discussions enough to stay in -core: I'd
be delighted if they want to rejoin as core - as we discussed last
time, after a shorter than usual ramp up period if they get stuck in.
What's the shorter than usual ramp up period?
You know, we haven't actually put numbers on it. But I'd be
comfortable with a few weeks of sustained involvement.
+1.  Sounds reasonable.

In general, I agree with your points about removing folks from core.

We do have a situation though where some folks weren't reviewing as
frequently when the Tuskar UI/API development slowed a bit post-merge.
  Since that is getting ready to pick back up, my concern with removing
this group of folks, is that it leaves less people on core who are
deeply familiar with that code base.  Maybe that's ok, especially if
the fast track process to get them back on core is reasonable.
Well, I don't think we want a situation where when a single org
decides to tackle something else for a bit, that noone can comfortably
fix bugs in e.g. Tuskar / or worse the whole thing stalls - thats why
I've been so keen to get /everyone/ in Tripleo-core familiar with the
entire collection of codebases we're maintaining.

So I think after 3 months that other cores should be reasonably familiar too ;).
Well, it's not so much about just fixing bugs.  I'm confident our set
of cores could fix bugs in almost any OpenStack related project, and
in fact most do.  It was more just a comment around people who worked
on the initial code being removed from core.  But, if others don't
share that concern, and in fact Ladislav's comment about having
confidence in the number of tuskar-ui guys still on core pretty much
mitigates my concern :).

Well if it would be possible, I would rather keep guys who want to be more active in core. It's true that most of us worked on Horizon till now, preparing libraries we will need. And in next couple months, we will be implementing that in Tuskar-UI. So having more core who understands that will be beneficial.

Basically me and tzumainn are working on Tuskar-UI fulltime. And ifarkas and tomas-8c8 are familiar enough with the code, but will be working on other projects. So that seems to me like a minimal number of cores to keep us rolling(if nobody gets sick, etc.).

We will need to get patches in at certain cadence to keep the deadlines(patches will also depend on each other blocking other people), so in certain cases a +1 one from a non core guy I have a confidence in, regarding e.g. deep knowledge of Angular.js or Horizon will be enough for me to approve the patch.

That said, perhaps we should review these projects.

Tuskar as an API to drive deployment and ops clearly belongs in
TripleO - though we need to keep pushing features out of it into more
generalised tools like Heat, Nova and Solum. TuskarUI though, as far
as I know all the other programs have their web UI in Horizon itself -
perhaps TuskarUI belongs in the Horizon program as a separate code
base for now, and merge them once Tuskar begins integration?
IMO, I'd like to see Tuskar UI stay in tripleo for now, given that we
are very focused on the deployment story.  And our reviewers are
likely to have strong opinions on that :).  Not that we couldn't go
review in Horizon if we wanted to, but I don't think we need the churn
of making that change right now.

So, I'll send my votes on the other folks after giving them a little
more time to reply.
