Processing MRs very slow?

The same has happened to an MR I submitted, 713. I believe it is because this kind of contributions have low priority, and maintainers already have their hands full.

Subject: Processing MRs very slow?


I made a gitlab MR that adds two NOINLINE pragmas and some comments.
It's been about a week since my last push to the MR, and nothing has
happened since.

Is there a way to check on what is its status:
  - Is it stuck because I need to do something?
  - Is it stuck because someone else needs to do something?
  - Or is it just in the queue to be merged, in which case it would be
nice to know where in line it is, so I can see that there is progress,
and it is not just stuck.

Given that this is such a simple MR, I am not too worried about
conflicts but a week long lag seems less than ideal for anything even
mildly complex.


PS: I just clicked on all the little check boxes from the
template---perhaps that's why things weren't progressing?
