Perhaps it should be more formal than "Let's review the patches". For
example, we choose a day and do each patch at once. This way, everyone looks
at it, and hopefully all people who can review the patch decide if it's
still valid or not. It would take a long time but at this point, but on the
other hand, going through the tracker alone is really painful. If we review
patch one per day, it will take two years to complete the task :-D This is
just a concept of course but the key point is that like Alex said, if it's
formal, then everybody should feel concerned. But this will not solve the
initial problem of handling new features, this will just help in cleaning
the tracker.
