We have 46 patches in this CommitFest so far and I know that there are
quite a few patches that have been posted but not added to the
CommitFest application yet (please fix this, if you are a patch author
who has failed to do this) and that there will be lots more patches
posted over the next few days.  I expect that we will have at least 60
patches in the CommitFest, maybe 75 or more.  These patches *will not*
review themselves.  If you're available to review for this final
CommitFest (and if you've submitted any patches to it, you should make
yourself available to review as well), then please either sign up for
some patches, or (better) email me off-list and I will assign you a
patch.  You don't need to be an experienced patch reviewer (although
if you are, your help is even-more-appreciated) or even an experienced
C programmer, but you do need to be willing to:

(1) test the patch and comment on what you think is good and bad about it,
(2) read the code to the extent you are able and comment on what you
think is good and bad about that, even if it's just "the formatting is
all wrong",
(3) do (1) and (2) in a timely fashion so that the patch author has
time to update it,
(4) prod the patch author if s/he does not respond to your review comments, and
(5) keep the commitfest application up to date with respect to your
chosen/assigned patch.

As I'm sure everyone is aware, this is the LAST CommitFest for 9.1 and
we have a TON of patches, many of them large and important, to review.
 Please help however you can.
