I'd like to provide some extra data here. This is our current status:

Total patches without activity in the last 2 months: 73
Total patches closing a bug: 30
Total patches with negative review by core reviewers: 62
Total patches with negative review by non-core reviewers: 75
Total patches without a core review in the last patchset: 13
Total patches with negative review from Jenkins: 50

It's not ideal but it's also not a lot. I'd like to recover as many
patches as possible from the above and I'm happy to do that manually
if necessary.
