We had a Gerrit dashboard that helped stable reviewers stay on top of
things [1], but it looks like it doesn't seem to work anymore. My
suggestion would be to look into that as the lack of visibility might be
the source of the recent delay.

Rather than create yet another group(s), it makes sense to have an
individual from each neutron project participate in the
neutron-stable-maint team (whose admin rights I think are held by Ihar as
neutron member), for those of whom have actually an interest in reviewing
stable patches :)
