Now this IMO is true and important to be taken care of. Because every
human being likes to see his / her contribution right there, accepted
and feel excited about it. Especially the first contributions.

I remember Sankarshan or Sayamindu asking for a app to be packaged and
in a couple of days the packaging was done and submitted for review.
*This* is fantastic response. Why not the same for "Reviews of First
time packagers". Why not somewhere in that Fedora-India wiki page put
up a note asking people to send out an email to this list requesting
package review? Or during those fedora activity days, the mentors can
sit and review packages of new contributors and right away upload it?
Or have a mentor for a new contributor (I am sure this this is in
place already) and that mentor accountable for quick reviewing of the
very first packages or contributions ?

There has to be some priority queuing for reviewing packages that are
being uploaded by new contributors?

My 2 paisa. Hope we get a rupee by the end :)
