how to find and add reviewers

+## Reviews
+Reviewers for [apache/beam]( are listed in
+Prow-style OWNERS files. A description of these files can be found
+### Finding reviewers
+Currently this is a manual process. Tracking bug for automating this:
+For each file to be reviewed, look for an OWNERS file in its directory. Pick a
+single reviewer from that file. If the directory doesn't contain an OWNERS file,
+go up a directory. Keep going until you find one. Try to limit the number of
+reviewers to 2 per PR if possible, to minimize reviewer load.
+### Adding yourself as a reviewer
+Find the deepest sub-directory that contains the files you want to be a reviewer
+for and add your Github username under `reviewers` in the OWNERS file (create a
+new OWNERS file if necessary).
+The Beam project currently only uses the `reviewers` key in OWNERS and no other
+features, as reviewer selection is still a manual process.
+<!-- TODO(BEAM-4790): If Prow write access gets approved
+(, document that if you are
+not a committer you can still be listed as a reviewer. Just ask to get added as
+a read-only collaborator to apache/beam by opening an INFRA ticket. -->
