Yep! :-)

s/2 weeks/1 week/, right?
The ContributionChecklist page in the wiki says
"Please ping and keep pinging the patch on a weekly basis."

Also, pings can get buried, at least in my inbox, as all I scan is the
subject line.
We could add to the protocol the inclusion of "[PING]" in the subject
line or some such.
That will raise the visibility to me anyway.

Yeah.  Anyone should feel free to ping once per week.
That still doesn't guarantee a timely response, but at least it'll
raise visibility.
