Cherry-pick proposal

I suspect that the primary motivation for this proposal is that PR’s against master often become stale because nobody on the project looks at them. And then submitters are told to rebase, fix conflicts, etc. It gets disheartening. If that is the motivation, then perhaps the project should address that root cause.  Here are two ideas:

  1.  Mark’s scanning tool complains to the OTC if it has been “X” weeks without OTC action.  I would pick X as 2.
  2.  Change the submission rules to be one non-author OTC member review and allow OTC/OMC to put a hold for discussion during the 24-hour freeze period. That discussion must be concluded, perhaps by a vote, within “Y” weeks (four?).
