Recent merge requests in need of attention

I haven’t posted this list to discourse for a few weeks. Remember you can always see the list at: We seem to have fewer MRs going more than a week without comments, which is great to see!

I wonder, with some embarrassment, whether this is because in one of the previous rounds I commented on a larger than usual number of merge requests thanking the contributor and saying that it looked fine to me but I couldn’t merge it because I’m not a maintainer … now I’m wondering if that only serves to take them off of this list without helping!

A more specific question: seems like it’s quite specialized and will require review from someone with expertise in accessibility. It’s also been waiting for several months :scream: How should we best go about finding someone to review it?

I’ve been looking at it, but it’s a complicated beast.


My goal with this initiative was to avoid MRs being ignored completely. So I think you have helped a lot here, and thanks for that!

We can be more ambitious and think about goals for having patches actually reviewed within a certain time. Realistically that depends on having more active maintainers, so we need to look at it from a different angle: how do we make people want to maintain GNOME software, and how do we teach them to do it.
