We could need some stat page and we should encourage people to review (I 
mean review until it is merged) at least two other changes for each pushed 
Once we have a stat page (beside those from Tolleiv and Susi) that really 
get the data and stats out of gerrit, then we could establish some review 
games. Maybe some agency could sponsor something for the contributor of the 
month ;)

Another long standing issue is the low activity of the core team as a whole. 
Only a hand full of people frequently review changes and another hand does 
that from time to to.
We need more (active) core team members who actively review changes.

IMHO the target version should be adopted (if manageable) or dropped. If it 
is dropped, it should be reviewed from time to time of an issue is still 

The best way would be a script that resets all versions and asks for 
feedback of the bug is still reproducible with the new version.
