Hi Roozbeh,

Many packages have been in-submission for months.  I'm trying to do more
reviews (aiming for 1+ a week) but free time is scarce.  Between work,
family, etc. I think many folks are doing what they can.

If someone else hasn't already done it I'll review MediaWiki this
weekend or the next.  I promise.  :-)

Yes!  Doing reviews is the *best* way to improve things!  I know this
sounds really obvious, but if you submit N packages and do less than N
reviews, then you're a net contribution to the backlog.
