Hi Ralf,

You added the old account for Eli (eli.friedman); I went ahead and switched it to the newer account (efriedma). You can tell it's an old account because if you go to https://reviews.llvm.org/p/eli.friedman/ (which can be accessed by e.g. clicking the eli.friedman in your reviewers list), the last activity is from 2016, whereas https://reviews.llvm.org/p/efriedma/ has recent activity. Hopefully that gets you some activity. It's also customary to add llvm-commits as a subscriber instead of a reviewer, but that shouldn't make too much of a difference.

The standard procedure is also to ping reviews weekly, which helps get review activity in most cases.

Subject: [llvm-dev] How to get a review for a patch?

Hi all,

I submitted a small documentation patch [1] three weeks ago.  This is my first
patch submitted against LLVM, so I was extra careful to follow the instructions
(turns out this is quite a bit more complicated than the pull-request-based
workflow).  So far, I got no reaction at all to my patch.  Does that mean I did
something wrong, like picking the wrong reviewer?  Should I pick another one?
Obviously I don't know the code organization nor any of the people involved, so
I don't feel I can meaningfully judge who might be able to review this patch.
