Hmm, how can we encourage non-DDs to review packages.
I'm thinking it might work to offer sponsorship in exchange for
reviews. So, a DD reviews a package from maintainer. If there are no
blockers to the upload, the DD says, "looks good, review someone elses
package and I'll upload it".
I think I'll also do a workshop about reviewing packages at the
MiniDebConf in Vietnam. Does anyone think that an online workshop (IRC
or similar) about package review would be helpful?
