Flavio, I concur, for a lively committee need active core reviewers. Core 
status is an honor and responsibility.
I agree it’s a good idea to replace inactive cores, no offense, priorities and 
focus of developers change, and should they want to return, can be fast pathed 
then.

Malini

I'm sorry but no. I don't think there's anything that requires extra patience 
than 2 (or even more) cycles without provaiding reviews or even any kind of 
active contribution.

I personally don't think adding new cores without cleaning up that list is 
something healthy for our community, which is what we're trying to improve 
here. Therefore I'm still -2-W on adding new folks without removing non-active 
core members.

The list contains the names of ppl that have not provided *any* kind of review 
in the last 2 cycles. If there are folks in that list that you think shouldn't 
be there, please, bring them up now. If there are folks you think *should* be 
in that list, please, bring them on now.

There's nothing unpolite in what's being discussed here. The proposal is based 
on the facts that these folks seem to be focused in different things now and 
that's perfectly fine.

As I mentioned in my first email, we're not questioning their knowledge but 
their focus and they are more than welcome to join again.

I do not think *counting* the stats of everyone makes sense here, we're not 
competing on who reviews more patches. That's nonsense.
We're just trying to keep the list of folks that will have the power to approve 
patches short.

As I mentioned above, I don't think we're being impatient. As a matter of fact, 
some of this folks haven't been around in *years* so, pardon my stubborness but 
I believe we have been way to patient and I'd have loved this folks to step 
down themselves.

I infinitely thank these folks past work and efforts (and hopefully future 
works too) but I think it's time for us to have a clearer view of who's working 
in the project.

As a last note, it's really important to have the list of members updated, some 
folks rely on that to know who are the contacts for some projects.
