    I will do so when all is clear.

    I have been following this.  I think this is a good idea.
    Basically it is a way for someone to declare an interest in an area of
    code, and get copied on changes, without having to grant that person
    any formal decisionmaking authority.
    If this is not sufficiently clear, do you think we should document
    this more clearly ?  Perhaps we could write:
      + R: Designated reviewer: FullName <address@domain>
      +        Reviewers should be CCed on patches.  However, they do not
      +        have a formal governance role, and are listed here
      +        simply because of their own request.
    or something ?

That is clearer: I copied the text from the Linux maintainers file. 
@Jan: let me know whether you want me to re-roll the series with the text
