This concerns me given the number of reviewing charmers currently and the
size of our queue on any one basis. Currently charms are just ACK'd by one
charmer and that can create review backups. Moving to three people will
potentially create quite a large entry for reviews to occur. I completely
agree that gating on reviews landing with more eyes on is a great way to
help curb our growing quality concern. What I'd like to do, if this were to
land as policy, would be to find a way to both motivate current charmers
and find a way to more or less consider charm-contributors as "Jr Charmers"
and have them providing reviews then we might have enough man power to keep
the queue quieter. I'd love to talk about these and other suggestions
during UDS.

Definitely want to discuss this one as well during UDS. I understand and
like this but don't want to duplicate efforts between charmers and core
