Not a GTK+ maintainer, but I maintain other modules, so my 2 cents here:

One thing I miss is a centralized page where I can see all the
outstanding patches up for review in the modules I maintain. Something
similar can be constructed manually with a query (like this?,
but there are many simple improvements that would make it even more

- Ability to sort by age. The older a patch is, the worse it is that
you ignore it. I guess up to a certain threshold where the submitter
won't care anymore, but still.
- Sort by size. Reviewing a small patch can be done easily and much
more frequently. Reviewing a 50k patch probbaly requires sitting down
for a long time.
- Sort by activity/interaction? If I have already looked at a patch
once and this is a second/third/etc iteration, tell me. Probably only
doable if we are strict about "one-patch-per-bug", but I think this
would also be useful.

We could do many things here, but you get the idea. I think having
something like this for each bugzilla account for the modules the
person maintains (or maybe just the modules she chooses to track)
would help a lot.
