Heh. I understand how you feel, but aside of the GR, there may be other 
reasons why the list has been quiet. One popular one:

Various kinds of holidays in different countries at this time.

People may just need a timeout, not just from the GR (and other conflicts 
within the Debian community).

I am not a DD, so I cannot sponsor anything.

As I maintain a package myself I may be able to give some review there 
and there. However as these are the last days of my holidays, not today 
or at the weekend. I still need the time off.
