Thanks all, I think we made a real dent in the review queue yesterday.

A massive improvement, thank you!

I spent a lot of yesterday abandoning spec reviews that were waiting
on the authors to respond for other a month or so. I will keep doing
this now and then.

In that process I certainly found quite a few reviews at the end of
the queue that had been forgotten. I just didn't seem them in a big
sea of red at the end of the queue.

I will personally try and watch these stats more closely, and spot
people who get forgotten!

A few extra ones this morning too, not many, but we are really chewing
through more than we have before.

Big thank you to Russell for reminding me about that stats, we should
be more organised next time, and take the before readings!

Many thanks,
