On mass renames

Sometimes, it is necessary to perform a mass rename to bring some
consistency to a class of packages.

In that case any workflow that proceeds package by package is the road
to failure, since
— either each package is done separately by different people with little
coordination (and you don't get consistency, some packagers will always
slack or fail)
– or one person goes through each package and you get burnout and again,
failure (and I won't even speak of doing a new review for each package)

I'd like to see a mode where:
— a list of consistent renames is approved collectively
— the associated cvs work is done in one shot by infra
— each individual packager gets to work on the spec changes of his
— an experienced packager or a group of packagers is mandated to check
it's done correctly and eventually to substitute to the packagers who
don't do their bit at all
