I actually don't mind being forgotten. I'm a fan of the Linus style
"do it now or drop it until you send it again" queue management.
It doesn't cost me anything since i have to keep track of stuff i
submit anyway in case of slips tween here and there, and it helps
me because it means that i can make my work more likely to go in
promptly by making it easier to merge. It also means that my work
doesn't get buried inextricably buried beneath a pile of poorly
maintained patches.
