To be clear since we have several new ports out there: new ports are 
generally low-risk if they don't require significant changes to 
target-independent code beyond the standard bits such as config.gcc that 
are listed in doc/sourcebuild.texi, and can often go in even in stage 4.

I believe we currently have at least the CR16, Tile and RL78 ports 
pending, plus the resurrection of the Interix OS port.  I believe all four 
(or five, since Tile is really two ports) of those ports currently need 
the people submitting them to send new versions against current trunk that 
address the most recent review comments - and to be pinged as needed until 
reviewed.  (Take care to ensure they are updated for all the libgcc build 
system changes that have gone in recently.)

If maintainers haven't been explicitly proposed to the SC for these ports, 
they should be (although a port may sometimes go in without a maintainer 
being approved - I think the SC are still considering Epiphany 
maintainership - and depending on the author's GCC experience they may not 
always be approved as a maintainer initially until they have a reasonable 
record of good patches).
