You should understand that in the Fedora project (just like in free
software) contributors are (in general) benevolent. And in general, when
they are not they are overwhelemed. So a review and sponsorship pending 
may take very few time to be looked at if it is of interest for a sponsor 
and/or a reviewer. But it may also take a great amount of time for many
reasons, like lack of interest from the reviewers, not enough time to
review, and any other reason you can imagine. Currently the review queue
is quite big because all the package formerly in core has to be
reviewed. But even before the merge review there were reviews that were
some years old.
