I actually do rely on email notifications for review duties.  I use
filtering that moves the messages into dedicated folders per repository,
and I use threading in those folders.  When I see a review merge (or
when I see it abandoned), I select the whole thread and delete it;
otherwise I follow changes made to a review and determine whether I need
to re-review it based on whether votes to that point have been +'s or
-'s.  I even subscribe to a couple of projects and check out new reviews
submitted there.  This is actually partly to blame for me being such a
prolific reviewer in nova and novaclient :)
