Someone from the Fedora Infrastructure team can answer this? I don't
know the Infrastructure setup but, I believe this can be obtained from
the FAS accounts?

Anyone part of the packaging team can do the review, I believe.

This needs to be answered by newcomers.

Special niches are fine. The people who are part of it have their
objectives, goals defined, and their vision is clear. What is required
is to assist newcomers to align their interests to any of the
sub-projects where they begin work.

Raise the flag, immediately!

If newcomers are stuck or need help, please don't hesitate to ping on
IRC (#fedora-india), or simply write to this list. Seriously, we are
least bothered about English or grammar.
