[Gluster-devel] Review backlog

Hi All,

We have approximately 500 open patches in gerrit with the last updated 
timestamp of at least one patch going all the way back to 2012. Of these 
patches, a fair number are no longer valid and probably need to be 
abandoned. Even after that we will be left with a  significant number of 
patches needing review, rework and rebasing. Needless to say the 
daunting review backlog has its share of side effects. I am wondering 
how we can reduce the overall backlog and bring it down to more 
manageable levels.

Apart from reducing this significant backlog now, I feel that we also 
need to evolve a process that helps in keeping the review backlog 
healthy going forward.

Appreciate any ideas and solutions that you can provide to help address 
these related problems.
