Three Monkeys, Three Typewriters, Two Days

October 21, 2005


I started reading through my request queue today. These are requests for review I've made from others. It's pretty depressing reading, as usual. About half of the requests are on behalf of someone else, not even for my patches. Fully half of the patches date to June 2005 or earlier. Most of these have no indication from the reviewer that they ever plan to look at the patch. And this is given that I go through this list every so often and harrass people with non-bugmail... Maybe we should just start publically naming names. A "review hall of shame" if you will, posted on Mozillazine every week. Note that I fully expect I would be in any such list, since I have at least 4 or 5 review requests from before September 2005... So I understand how this sort of thing happens. But at least I try to make an effort to tell people in the bug if review will take a while...
