+1 but extend it to anyone on this list, anyone can review a patch. We
have ~12 committers, ~40 registered Jira developers but ~200 people
subscribed to this list, that's a lot of eyes and could address a great
number of patches per week.

Remember also that if you have submitted a patch then get some good
karma by reviewing someone else's patch, eventually the karma will come
back to you as people review your patch. Good karma also has the
positive effect of making people pick your patches up sooner since you
demonstrate community spirit, and it will help in becoming a committer
and thus being able to submit your own patches.

And feel free to review a patch even if it has been already reviewed, he
more eyes the better.

Thanks to Kathey for setting up the PatchListMaintenance page.
