It's the Linux Kernel Summit. It's well publicized:

It's the yearly meeting of the top Linux kernel developers, it usually
lasts several days and since a large portion of the kernel developers
who attend have to travel on 10+ hour flights to reach the summit
location most choose to pad their trip on either side by several days
in order to recover from jet lag and other effects of travelling.

This year most kernel developers stayed for the rest of the week in
order to attend the Japan Linux Symposium.

Many people were offline a total of 2 weeks or more because of these
events. Some still haven't returned from Japan.

But that's neither here nor there, people sometimes are simply
overloaded with work that is important to them, or from their
view more important than reviewing your work.

Sometimes that happens and you just have to be patient and

Complaining that your work isn't getting looked at in a timely manner
will always have the exact opposite effect that you want, it makes
people have a smaller desire to look at your stuff.
