FYI The things that get my attention quickest are:

1) Patches mentioned when I'm in IRC - This is a short cut but you  
still need to do (3)
2) Patches marked up with relevant keywords in priority order - commit  
 > tested > has-patch
3) Patches which have clear information in the ticket about: The bug,  
The fix, The test cases
4) Patches on tickets to which I am CC'd - These end up in a separate  
mail folder from the mail wp-trac mail deluge!

In general when I have the free time I start from here - https://core.trac.wordpress.org/report/6

I hope that helps
