How we triage and review PRs
With the SDK repo being the home for many different areas, we've started trying to label incoming issues for the area they are related to using Area- labels. Then we rely on the codeowners to manage and triages issues in their areas. Feel free to ping the owners listed in that file if you're not getting traction on a particular issue or PR. Please try to label new issues as that'll help us route them faster.
For PRs, we assign out a reviewer once a week on Wednesday looking only at PRs that are green in the build. If you are contributing, please get the PR green including a test if possible and then ping @dotnet-cli if you want to raise visibility of the PR.
