Hi Romain,

the proposal is here: http://wiki.debian.org/CopyrightReview.

To be honest, it did not have success at all. However, taking "advantage" of
the time pakcages spend in the NEW queue, I recently modified the proposal as

After uploading a new package, look at two packages that are above yours in the
queue, review them and send your conclusions to their ITP bug. There are two

 - By spotting errors of others, one may shorten the time his own package stay
   in the queue.

 - If the persons who got a review play the game, it is a chain reaction that
   should propagate to the whole queue :)

Nowardays, it is very easy to set up a mentors.debian.net account. I have
decided to systematically upload my new packages there in addition to
ftp-master, to make them available to the world. Unfortunately, it is not
possible to access NEW packages from ftp-master since if the packages contain
some undeclared cryptography, it would be an illegal export for which Debian
may be liable (http://www.debian.org/legal/cryptoinmain).

Have a nice day,
