Hmm.  I appreciate the desire to give back, but I don't know how to
clarify the several descriptions I've already given.  Again, in
a nutshell, the patch manager (PM) should, at regular intervals, go
through [PATCH] threads and for each patch do:

case $state in
  (accepted-and-committed) :;;
  (rejected) :;;
  (not-yet-reviewed) ping;;
  (has-been-reviewed-and-is-awaiting-revised-submission) ping;;
  (*) DTRT;;

As to other ways to help, well, how about writing documentation patches?
They're very helpful, and not hard to write.  See Doc/Zsh/*.yo.  (Custom
syntax highlighting for Vim is in the tree.)
