So, that would imply not acting on patches unless a committer has an interest in it, right?
If a patch poster wants action and isn't getting it he/she would need to post on @dev to find
a champion.

A committer who is comfortable with the changes will typically be the "champion" behind it
to ensure it's up to snuff (matches code-style, no compiler warnings, works as intended, has
tests, etc), apply it, and merge it to any other branches as necessary.
