I'd love to see a bot that educates people but I'm not sure if we should
auto-rejects patches that are simply old. Maybe we need a little bit more
of graduality like pinging the author of the patch first, and then make it
obsolete if nobody responds etc...

This is just an initial proposal. I'm not wed to any of the details of how

I'd agree that having a really large review queue isn't ideal.  Maybe we can
customize the review queue so that it only shows patches of your expertise.
