+1.  Pings on specific threads can help clear things up when, for
example, the author and reviewer are each waiting for the other.  And,
as you say, they also help avoid the situation where a patch just
falls off the radar and misses the release for no especially good
reason, which naturally causes people frustration.

I think your pings have been quite helpful, although I think it would
have been better in some cases if you'd done them sooner.  Pinging
after a week, with a 3 day deadline, when there are only a few days
left in the CommitFest isn't really leaving a lot of room to maneuver.
