Agreed. I'm going to add a freetext field in the packages detail page
for additional comments and a flag on the list page indicating whether
more comments are available.

I didn't actually want to bother setting up a real rights system, and I
think we can trust the few people that will help not to be abusive. As
for the accident, yes, that's a possible risk, the best solution is to
carefully coordinate the work through the wiki. I don't expect dozens of
people anyway :)
I also added a few safeguards: reviewers must be different, you can't
fill review2 if review1 isn't filled.

Ok, I'll add that

This was actually a side effect of the filling script. I had thought it
might be a good idea to review tags at the same time, but I think it's
too early for a tags review. The maintainers haven't had a chance to tag
their packages themselves.

Fixed, feel free to edit.

Hehe, that's why I said native english speakers would be greatly appreciated and why
several people should review the texts.
Thanks for your feedback,
