I'm okay with abandoning old some old reviews which are obviously going
nowhere, such as ones superseded by other fixes or not deemed necessary by
anyone (and should probably have been abandoned by the author). I'm not
convinced about this being a commonplace action for reviews which are currently

I agree with this. I made (actually hacked up Ironic's. Thanks Ironic!) a
dashboard for glance [1], which is what I use during reviewing. This hides a

of the reviews which require attention.

Using or editing a dashboard for your own daily use removes the need to abandon
the majority of the changes this proposal suggests.
