[Gluster-devel] Reviews older than 90 days

Did get hold of all the pending patches till 2017-05-20 (660 in total).
Note that it includes "All open" patches.

Attached is the file with all the details. Nigel, considering we have dump
to have reference, can we go ahead and close everything which is 79 days

Let me know if anyone wants CSV output of the pending patches, and what all
the info they need?

I recommend all the maintainers to go through the list and make sure they
take appropriate action on all old patches. If people are lazy to go
through all the patches, i can provide list of files changed per patch
(url), so you can choose what matters to you.
