Thank you for posting the BZ# entries in your other mail.

The above should be put to the Packaging SIG to work out a solution.
If this is put forward in the form of a proposal, it might expedite

I'd suggest a simpler solution - meet over IRC (#fedora-india) every
10/15 days so that existing or, new review requests can be given a
look-see. We do not have too many reviewers but this form of
collaborative working might see is increasing our reviewer and
packager base.

It would need someone to take a lead in arranging the meetings and,
ensuring that there are a couple of the reviewers available for a
discussion. Keeping the logs would be helpful too.

If you are looking for tooling to create a list of existing/new review
requests from folks from India, it should perhaps be trivial to use
the data in FAS and, do a look-up on BZ to produce a simple report.
