To be fair, 20+ were opened in the last 3 days, and some are already
pending or closed (thanks!). But I agree that having some patches
sleeping during months (or years) isn't that funny for porters...

As a first guess, one could use “patch moreinfo” to ask for help or peer
review, though asking the porter/patch submitter for explanations, and
eventually the -bsd list, should be sufficient. But I agree that there
might be better semantics (set of) (user)tags.
