I agree with tibbs.  This is the same principle as needing people to
install and test rawhide.

If you check the review ticket, there were several people in addition to
the packager and reviewer who tried the packages and found that they
worked.  I'm running the package right now and everything works.  If you
had reviewed the package then maybe you would have run across this
problem and it would have been solved before being approved.

BTW, checking that the package functions as advertised is one of the
items on the review checklist.
