I have to admit, I don't understand the difference between "Analysis"
and "Review". Seems like hair-splitting. Nor do I understand the
need for "Approved by", except in situations where we're tracking
votes (like backporting patches).

Why not just

    Patch by:
    Reviewed by:

I mean, aren't analysis and review the same thing? And if the change
was committed to the repository, then isn't it safe to assume that it
was approved not only by the reviewers, but most likely the person
doing the commit?

I think Garrett is right, we're spiraling down the path of micro-
management.
