Everyone: Anton is referring to Bug #236486 [1]

Anton: Manuel Wolfshant who was kind enough to point out a few problems is
not obligated to review it officially, he might have just noticed your
entry, and had a quick look.  These are pre-reviews.

As you need someone to sponsor you, that limits the number of people that
can accept for package into fedora down to roughly 50 (last time I
looked).  I'm not absolutely sure but I don't think Manuel is one of them.

Some tips however:
* Do a couple of well rounded out pre-reviews, for an example [2] is one I
did while waiting for a sponsor.
* Look into what other packages you can prepare
* Have patience, you submitted your package on the 14th and from
experience it can take a good 2+ weeks.
