Just a reminder. Please try and take the time to review pull requests for
druntime and/or Phobos (and dmd if you want to) at least periodically. There
aren't a lot of Phobos developers, and if very few of us pay attention to the
pull requests, then they take longer to get processed and they don't get as
much scrutiny as they should. Obviously, we all have real lives that take up
our time, and we only have so much time to give to doing anything with D or
Phobos, but participation in the pull requests for Phobos has been pretty low
overall, and progress is going to be slow if not much of anyone is looking at
pull requests. We also risk the quality of Phobos code dropping. So, please
take time when you can to review pull requests.
I just felt that a reminder was in order, so now you've been reminded, and you
can do whatever you feel is appropriate given your situation.

P.S. It would be particularly appreciated if those who are familiar with
Windows and the registry reviewed registry-related pull requests when they
come up. Andrei and I have been a bit out of our depth in dealing with them,
and I don't think that any Phobos developers who are generally Windows
programmers have been chiming in on any of those (though Andrej in particular
has been nice enough to give some good feedback on them).
