+1. There are 300+ patches for open bug reports in the bugtracker:

Many of the patches have never been reviewed or responded to.. it is
obviously discouraging for potential contributors who take the time to
create and submit a patch but never get any response.

There are also a lot of bugs that get reported but sit in NEW state, many
show no sign of ever being reviewed: http://goo.gl/OOwdQ3

Could the bug report/patch review handling be improved? Would gerrit or
some other patch handling tool help?
