Yes, you can look in FAS who have sponsor status in the Packager group.
Normally sponsors look for review requests needing sponsors, but if
you've been waiting for very long you can mail fedora-devel-list and ask
for someone to have a look at your package.

increasing order in time, so older reviews have smaller numbers. Picking
what to review is up to the packager.
