I know I'm not. I sometimes give an opinion when I get explicitly
asked for one, but sometimes also don't. I would not actively search
for issues that need my opinion.
OTOH, if other people want to search for this, to post list of them
to python-dev, I let them go ahead.
I *am* worried about the shyness that shines through, though.
Anybody performing the review should be able to propose a decision.
It might be that he had been missing some aspect, so some
maintainer will revert this decision, but there is no reason to be
shy of giving an opinion, and publicly announcing it in the tracker.
Of course, for some issue, one needs to do research first, i.e.
study the code, study some specifications, study the use case,
try reproducing the issue, etc. It's fine if some reviewer doesn't
want to contribute the time for that. In that case, it is best if
the issue remains unreviewed, until somebody comes along who does
the necessary research.
