Yeah, I try to do this too.  (Although I haven't been reviewing quite as 
many submissions as you and Marcus.)

Still, improving the tools as Markus (with a "k") suggests can make a 
real difference.  In fact, there may not be any other ways to improve 
the situation, aside from begging for help periodically...

Also, a casual observer may see that [updates] show up periodically on 
squeak-dev, and may assume that things are progressing just fine, even 
if in reality we are progressing more slowly than we should be.  So this 
may explain some of the lack of action too.
