Yes, I agree that we should have people review each other's work.

We are seeing a few different workflows emerge of Felicity's work. Either:

1. Felicity provides a pull request for someone else to merge.

2. Felicity provides suggestion, someone else applies the changes (and 
whatever else they do at the same time), and in that case, I'd suggest 
that Felicity should be doing the merging.

Would you be ok to vote +1 to enable 2?
