Yes, it would be great to get this stuff merged. Thanks for not giving up!

The problem is that only me and Arun do reviews. I'm currently
concentrating on fixing the release blocker bugs, and Arun has been
busy with non-PA things lately (I hope that won't be a permanent
situation). After we get the release candidate out, I can start doing
reviews again, but I can't promise any particular timeline for
reviewing your patches. I can only promise not to forget about them.

It would be great to have more people reviewing patches, but I don't
know how to acquire those people. I don't think the reviews have to
necessarily be done by someone with a title of "maintainer", but on the
other hand, giving much trust to drive-by contributors seems risky

If you (or anyone else reading this!) would be interested in becoming a
regular reviewer, I think we can make that happen.
