If nothing else ever came of the Commit Fest approach, if it creates 
more reviewers, then I think the Commit Fest process would be a success.

I think the Commit Fest approach does this by lowering the bar of entry 
to become a reviewer.  It does this because it brings more focus to 
patch review on a regular basis and since it changes the patch review 
process from a last minute dash that only experience hackers should get 
involved with to a process with more time before the final deadline, 
hence more friendly for new reviewers to get involved.  Good news all 
around!
