It is kind of a patch tracker, and i'd rather see it used more than the
"patch tracker" you've linked in. It's totally different workflow and IMO
it's much nicer than just sharing patches as files. IN differencial you can
always comment lines, compare revisions of the patches real easy. And i
don't see any issues with having long-term patches hosted in there. So the
actions there should be:

- If one does have a differential revision which is in "Needs action" group
go reviewing it
- If the patch is not gonna to be accepted anyway and it's still under the
review, commandeer it and abandone
- If the patch is good and not committed, go poking author (if he does have
commit rights) or commit it yourself.

But please, do not suggest moving patch review from the system which is
designed for this to a task tracker where reviewing is such a pain the soft
