I understand this feeling.  I'm still waiting (since several years)
for some patch series to get reviewed by qemu maintainers, and one
patch to get at last accepted in linux' input layer.  I'm quite sad I'm
now in the "blocker" position, mostly due to having still hundreds of
important mails to process in my mbox, and thus having to delay what
is not strictly for "tomorrow" or "next week"...  And I prioritized
uploading your work on libdiskfs threads so people can benefit from it,
rather than reviewing the startup patch series.

I'm however wondering: I don't see much reviewing being done apart
from mine.  It would help if some people could spend time on reviewing
patches.  I'm not saying taking responsibility for the commit step or
anything, but just proofreading the source code.  That is what takes
time before committing, and thus what prevents me from giving an ack on
something for which I already agree on the principle...
