If a patch was posted so long ago that it isn't in patchwork, it
effectively doesn't exist for reviewers. That means anything before
2014-03-14 (the oldest entry in patchwork).
It's *also* the case that we have too many unreviewed patches in patchwork
and not enough reviewers; I don't have any good solutions to that issue.
It's *also* the case that any frequent contributors should be cleaning up
their own patch state in patchwork so that superseded and committed
patches are marked as such and reviewers can more readily find the most
recent version of a patch. You have a particularly large number of
patches shown there including what look like many successive variants of
the same patch. As the submitter you're best placed to know which patches
have been completely superseded / committed; please clean up the entries
for your patches so that exactly one entry shows for the most recent
version of each patch that has not been superseded / committed / rejected,
and no entries show for superseded / committed rejected patch because they
have been marked as such.
As stated at
<https://sourceware.org/glibc/wiki/Patch%20Review%20Workflow>, Siddhesh or
Carlos can give you write access to patchwork if you don't already have
