I propose that each FESCo member should try to work on at least one
package review per week. Each week at the FESCo meeting, we'll ask
members which reviews they've worked on in the past week.

It won't be _mandatory_ -- we're not going to send the boys round to
visit a FESCo member who doesn't do it. But FESCo should be setting a
good example.

And anyone else who considers themselves an active member of the Fedora
development community should also try to do the same. If one a week
isn't realistic due to other commitments, set yourself a more relaxed
target -- like one a fortnight, or one a month, and try to stick to

Too many people (myself included) are just leaving the reviews unloved.

When new contributors submit packages and can't get through the
bureaucracy of getting them reviewed and approved, we are turning away
the very people we should be embracing.
