Absolutely, nova core will still have an awful lot of work todo
and will need to have fresh blood. The split will free up some %
of existing cores time though as there's certainly plenty of virt
driver only patches going through merge that are taking up non
negligble review time. eg I've done loads of review on vmware
only code which I'd be relieved of with vmware maintainers able
to form their own review core for their driver. There is also the
fact that people are holding back on even submitting code for
many drivers because they know it'll never get reviewed. So the
proportion of virt driver only code is likely to be higher than
what we currently see on review today.
