Does anyone know the results/metrics of the original Peer-to-Patent pilot program? Other than that "all of [accelerated] applications have received at least a first action on the merits." So that would be at least a year's worth of acceleration? It would be interesting to see a break out by technology area. It also seems to me that there was not a lot of participation since "only a few of the applications under review received more than six prior art submissions."

I just searched the PTO employment postings. There are twenty open positions for patent examiners/attorneys. Eight of them are GS-5 entry level positions. Although with starting salary around $42K, I don't see how the PTO is going to be able to attract qualified examiners/attorneys to the very expensive DC area.
