Sorry to hear that, Michael. As a regular lurker on the list, and
infrequent contributor, I've appreciated the fact that you haven't let
stuff get through the cracks.

A couple of questions before I go volunteering:

What is your typical work flow for managing the volume of patches that
comes through the dev list? Do you just let the threads pile up in your
inbox (or dev folder, etc.), or do you use some sort of external list?
Any hints, for me or whoever else takes the position, would be great.

How much time (on median) do you typically spend per week in the Patch
Manager Role? Is it something on the order of a few minutes a day, or
several hours a week?
