Of course, keep in mind, we wouldn't know that the package only has 3
files until we check.

As a hint.  When this happens, respond to the REJECT email you get when
you re-upload so that we know that there is a package we have already
checked,  so that we know you are re-uploading and addressing our

Knowing that 3 other DDs have checked a package doesn't change our work
at all, unless that reduces the number of uploads.   If a package has
been uploaded that 3 other DDs have signed off on, we are still going to
do the same checking that we would on a package that didn't have such a
review.  This is not to say that I wouldn't welcome such a thing.  I'd
hope that many of the packages we see wouldn't be uploaded if more
people were looking at them before they were uploaded.
