[Development] Spring-cleaning the Gerrit dashboards, again

Can we please agree on cleaning the dashboards up? Or, if we've agreed, can we 
do it?

My dashboard is unusable. For a few months now, I have stopped my daily look 
at the "Review Requests" section. As a result, I have missed important reviews 
of new features that should maybe be in 5.1, but will probably miss the 
deadline because my comments come in too late. Tough luck if you were affected.

I don't care how we're going to solve this, but can we please agree that we 
need to solve it and *do* solve it? To be frank, I really don't care if people 
feel offended that their patch that they haven't updated for 4 months gets 
"abandoned". If someone can find a better word, say so. If someone knows 
whether it's possible to create a separate state in Gerrit and this person 
*can* do it in our Gerrit installation within two weeks, say so.

Otherwise, let's use the solution we know of.

Until that happens, here's how I will operate:
 - I will look at my "Review Requests" dashboard once a month, time-permitting
   This does not mean I will review everything. Complex reviews will probably 
   be skipped.
 - I will react to pings on IRC (but reserve the right to do it later)
 - I will react to Gerrit emails that arrive while I am awake
   When I wake up, there are about 100 unread emails in the Gerrit folder 
   alone, most of which will be ignored

If you need my attention and you live in Europe, your best bets are after 
18:30 or before 09:00 (CEST; for CET, subtract one hour).
