All great ideas, but really isn't the core of the issue rate of new patches

Seems to me that with the growth of the projects and more people
contributing the number of people actively involved in reviews is not
keeping pace.  Then throw in all of the "new" projects which takes at least
a portion of someone who used to do all Nova all the time and now they're
spreading that work-load across 3 or 4 projects it seems the only solution
is more reviewers.

Prioritizing and assigning maintainers is a great idea and I think we've
all kinda feel into that unofficially any way, but there is a need for more
quality reviewers and to be quite honest with all of the new projects
coming in to play I think that problem is going to continue in to the next
release as well.
