This is to prevent reviewer to run into the same unchanged patches again and
again when checking on janitorial patrol. Frustrating reviewer is not something
we should do as they are rare anyway.

As said trying to get feedback on a self-inflicted -2 change is suboptimal
anyway as a/ there are drafts for that b/ many reviewers will not even open a
change marked as -2 on the overview, esp. when that change is a few weeks old

The auto-abandon stops frustrating those few reviewer that do walk _all_ change
(which is a good thing) and it reminds the submitters that they still have
something open and it hurts the change in no way. As a casual submitter to
openstack, I found the autoabandon very helpful and not at all discouraging --
rather it promotes engagement.
