Me nether, I repeatedly used the word "some".

The standard procedure would be to 
a) close the review NOTABUG or
b) follow the AWOL procedure if reporter does not respond.
Please show me a single case where we (community AND/OR Red Hat)
successfully applied a) or b) to a RH employee.

I'll shut up if you can show me such a case.

It's not only the merge reviews. I can show you bugs where a package was
broken for a whole release and the bug was closed "WONTFIX" because the
package was EOL then. Looking at my bugzilla frontpage I see a couple of
bugs that are older than a year and still new or already closed.
Assignees were not even responding when I set NEEDINFO. _All_ these bugs
are assigned to Red Hat developers, _not_a_single_ of them to a
community maintainer. How comes?

Regards,
Christoph
