Hi Steve,

I would suggest manually finding qualified reviewers for the patch,
and asking them via email whether they can look at it. A quick search
through WebCore/ChangeLog for "inspector/" turns up a couple of
reviewers of earlier patches. Also, a recent addition to the
webkit-patch script is "webkit-patch upload --suggest-reviewers" which
automates this process.
