Absolutely. Besides, if you do call it 'mandatory' you have to start
defining what would happen if people don't comply, and the whole thing
just gets silly.

I'm talking about a 'recommended practice', and just asking people each
week which packages they've looked at. Nothing more.

And even though people are busy, it shouldn't actually take _that_ long
to make progress on reviewing a single package, each week.

I'm not sure I'd even go that far. Let's try just raising the profile of
package review first, and see where we get with it.

Might also be useful to send a list to fedora-devel-list periodically
(daily/weekly), listing the packages which are awaiting review.
