That's not really a "review" then, is it?

I don't think it's my place to agree or disagree with that statement,
anyway; the question we've been asked to rule on is who should be the
maintainer for the developer's reference.  I hope that low-level questions
like this can be sorted out between the two of you without needing to
involve the TC; if they can't, I guess we need to take that into account,
but that would be unfortunate.

Requiring review before commit ensures that the rate of commits does not
exceed the rate at which changes can be reviewed.
