I think most issues /have/ been read. It's just that for many of them, 
nobody is interested enough in or feels competent enough for fixing them.

I don't think this has anything to do with properly setting the stage 
field. We just have limited time and manpower. Perhaps one of our goals 
should be to reach out more to potential contributors.

As for open issues with a patch, a "code review" button sending this 
patch to Rietveld (or any other similar tool) is something many of us 
have been hoping for :-) It would make reviewing easier, faster and more 
thorough (because you visualize things better than by looking at a diff).
