AFAIK, there is just one message of mine to attend to.  This one, that I
mentioned before:

How is it sprawling?  I disagree with the use of the wiki for discussion.
 We already have a bug tracker for tracking state and updates regarding bugs
(and we have a bug for this as you point out).  My understanding is that we
have IRC and mailing-list for discussions.  Now you're asking everyone
involved in this review to also follow discussions in the wiki.  In my
opinion, that increases the sprawl.  Also in my opinion, the wiki is meant
for documentation.  Let's please keep using it for documentation and not
discussions.  For one thing, the only way I will know that the wiki
discussion has been updated is if you email me with what you want me to
comment on.  At that point, I would just rather use email or the bug
tracker.  In fact, I would probably just reply by email and not bother
updating the wiki.  If roundup or the mailing list is not working for
tracking + discussions, then perhaps we should consider having a different
workflow, but I feel strongly that the wiki does not make sense here.

If Petr and Ganesh found it useful in the past, that's great for them, but I
do not want it to become the norm for patch reviews that participate in.

You can ask, but I do not want to move this discussion to the wiki.
