I see this a lot lately, ticket gets assigned from a reviewer to a trainee
and it just sits there for over a week. Author doesn't ask a damn thing,
reviewer who knows where and trainee, of well, maybe didn't even get the
notification from http://make.wordpress.org/themes that ticket was assigned
to him.
