How is it different from the sunrise overlay? We had very similar unreviewed/reviewed split model there. And you buried that project yourself ~2.5 years ago because it was stinking already. Furthermore such project will distort already thin resources from proxy maint and GH PR reviewers. So I see no practical point in resurrecting sunrise under another name and a slightly different policy. So please NO. Best regards, Andrew Savchenko
