Mostly that in cases where there's been feedback to which the patch
submitter has not responded, pinging them is more likely than anything
to elicit either no response or a "sorry, ran out of time to work on
this", and in either case pinging again the same number of days later
is probably more annoying than helpful.  Patches that have been
entirely ignored or that are waiting on someone to push, are a
different matter.

In my case, once is helpful, twice in 10 days would be annoying.  But
I don't know how other committers allocate their time (and it's
currently more difficult for me to commit other people's patches than
it ought to be, and I can't say when I'll get that rectified).
