Actually I think gentle-nagging is an incredibly important part of OS
(and, life in general).  The process here is not perfect -- we all
have our ways of tracking TODOs, but, inevitably, often, things fall
past the event horizon on anyone's TODO list, and gentle nagging /
bump is very much appreciated to bring attention back, but
unfortunately not done nearly often enough.

That said, we of course will also forever need more committers...
