Um, how about no one sticks no one's name to any patch unless it is themselves 
or they are the commit fest management team and the reviewer has explicitly 
OK'ed it.

Let's not begin to use several levels of "Reviewer: X", "X says: I will really 
review it.", "RH says: This X is legit.", "Reconfirmed-by: X".  The wiki is 
weird enough to use that we shouldn't need to edit it in more than one place 
for each logical step.
