What?  PRs assigned to gnome tend to rot?  You may want to have a look
at your stats before saying something like that.  We have historically
been very good at closing PRs in a very reasonable time frame.  In fact,
we only have one PR opened that assigned to gnome, and this one will
most likely be closed shortly.

As for PRs assigned to phoenix@, those should be moved over to gnome at .
