All,

A few hours ago I assigned a reviewer to the last patch for this
CommitFest which still lacked one, with the exception of Heikki's
index-only quals patch, which I'm not sure can be reviewed at this
point because it depends on the indexam API changes patch, which is
still up in the air.  One thing I have belatedly realized about this
CommitFest is that we (or at least, I) did not think about asking the
committers about their schedules, and it turns out that three of them
- Heikki, Michael Meskes, Joe Conway - are away at the moment.  About
25% of the remaining patches are waiting for one of those three people
to take the next step (as either patch author, or reviewer, or
committer).  That's not exactly a catastrophe considering that we have
informally decided that a CommitFest is about a month long, and we're
only 10 days into it, but may mean that there's not much left for
non-committers to do well before all of the patches are actually dealt
with.

I've attached below a summary of which patches are waiting on which
people, to the best of my ability to determine such things.  It's
basically the same information that's on commitfest.postgresql.org,
but broken up differently and annotated with notes here and there.
There are a couple of patches that are ostensibly waiting on reviewer
activity that may really be ready for committer; the others are
reviews that aren't finished, and we may want to think about adding
additional reviewers to help move things along.  Also, there are a few
patches that are waiting on author which are nearly done, and it may
make sense for someone other than the patch author to pick them up and
finish them so that we can move forward with them.

Any thoughts/ideas/etc. welcome.

...Robert
