I would appreciate it if people gave me a few days before abandoning
all my patches.
I will be rotating back onto pywikibot next week, as I am mentoring a
Pywikibot GSOC project, and will start to go through my patches.
Also, the other thread about developing a roadmap is a very good idea.
That will help people with large sets of stale patches to work out
what needs to be worked on first.

On the recent hackathon in Vienna we talked about the large number of
changes still open and how to get the flow back. We currently have over 300

merged. Code review might not be a lot of fun and this is made worse by this
A lot of the changes have issues preventing this:
* Merge conflict, needs to be rebased
* Not verified, tests fail
* Code review -1, -2
My proposal is to abandon the changes we're not going to work on anyway and
focus our attention on the changes we do want to get merged. I understand
that some changes in which people invested a lot of time and effort will get
abandoned, but I think the benefit of getting the code review process back
on track is higher. Abandoned changes are not gone, we can always open them
I ask everyone who has (a lot of) old open changes to have a look at them
and make the decision: Pick it up or abandon. If the change is linked to a
phabricator task, it would be nice to update the task too.
