Patience is a virtue, or so they tell me, I wouldn't know :)

Its only 3 days since you last updated #224.

There needs to be enough time for people with varying amounts of free
time to comment. (nobody does Geany as a job).

We need to allow at least a week in most cases.  If its big, difficult
or controversial expect at least a month ... or more ... much more :)

The last two are both windows.  None of the devs uses windows
regularly (and some like me refuse categorically to do so) so windows
changes will likely be slower than Linux ones anyway, simply because
fewer people will look at them and they need to make a special effort
to do so.

Also we are just before a release so its a bad idea to commit things
that might introduce errors, since there is not much testing going to
happen before release, and even less on windows changes.

Thats not a comment on any perceived quality of those PRs.  But
anybody can make a mistake, thats why 1.23.1 followed 1.23 so quickly
last time, after a last minute change caused problems. This time
hopefully no last minute buggy changes will get committed :)
