[Development] Spring-cleaning the Gerrit dashboards, again

Can we please agree on cleaning the dashboards up? Or, if we've agreed, can we
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
- 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).
