Don't forget: you can assign them to someone else if you feel you have too
much, or if you aren't the right person, or just don't feel like dealing
with that patch.

Possibly. I donno. That used to be done on patches, I gather, but that list
is kind of defunct, now. That's partly why I wrote the first posting in this
thread, to bring some of those patches to attention.
I don't think you're intended to be the Guardian Angel of those patches,

email@example.com), I guess. If you can't figure out what to do, assign it
