FWIW, I see the this "focus on being -core" as an often healthy desire to be recognized as a good effective reviewer. I guess that's related to where you said something similar in the Heat thread: http://email@example.com/msg11121.html there is a meme going around (I don't know if it's true or not) that some people are assessed - performance review stuff within vendor organisations - on becoming core reviewers. For example, if managers in these organizations said to people "I want to spend a significant proportion of your time contributing good and effective upstream reviews" that would be a good thing, right? One way that such well intentioned managers could know whether the reviewing is good and effective is whether the reviewers are getting added to the -core teams. That also seems mostly positive. Certainly better than looking at reviewer stats?
