+1.  FWIW, I'm willing to review some patches for this CommitFest, but
if the committers have to do first-round review as well as
committer-review of every patch in the CommitFest, this is going to be
long, ugly, and painful.  We need to have a substantial pool of
non-committers involved in the review process so that at least some of
the work gets spread out.  Expecting the 6-10 reasonably active
committers to handle all the review work for 50-100 patches is a fail.

This is not directed at you personally, Michael; you've done a ton of
review.  Unfortunately, you've been one of only a few.
