Hm, doing a little analysis on our last commits...

Since commit 9e7bce53707732700928eaf2bb53a5f1cc5d7784
which was on 2012-10-19, and was the first commit to
be pushed under the new proposed reviewed-by/signed-off-by
rules, we have:

- a total of 2772 commits
- Signed-off-by:  1995 tags by 24 different team members
- Reviewed-by:    2771 tags by 25 different team members

So your impression that nobody cares does not seem to be justified.

Of course this slows things down. Doing thorough reviews
takes time. But the resulting patches are almost always
much better and don't need to be amended afterwards as much
as before. So that's worth the pain, imho.

Do you have any patches out there pending review? (as most of
us do, btw) Then just ping again. Doesn't that work?
Of course, reviews are not designed for the impatient. ;-)

Cheers - Michael
