Important Information About the February Release

The Stewards are aware there has been an issue with getting patches reviewed and/or merged in a timely manner. The stewards are considering a delay to the February release to allow for these issues to be addressed.

Please take the time to validate that your submissions to the email list fall into one of the two categories please contact me directly immediately and CC the mailing list

[1] You have patches submitted to the mailing list requesting review with no response

[2] You have patches submitted to the mailing list that have been reviewed but not merged for the February release

Allow me to point out that it is not the job of the maintainers to
review all submissions - their main responsibility is to shepherd
reviewed patches and get them merged. The community as a whole is
responsible for getting patches reviewed.

So can I add [3] here

[3] If you see unreviewed patches on the mailing list that are inside
your area of expertise, please go ahead and share your opinion, even
if you are not a maintainer, steward or affiliated with the Tiancore
project in another way.
