Re: Review of gnome-gmail

Thanks for the review, and the sponsorship offer. I'll work the issues, and continue this offline when it's ready.

I think this is a prime example of how things could work, ideally. There is
absolutely no need for reviews to be only done by DDs! In fact, I think there
already was a proposal (I couldn't dig it up in a brief search, though) that for
each RFS people should do a review of someone else's RFS/package. Again, no need
to be a DD to do this. All you need a DD for is *sponsoring*. Surely any sponsor
will not upload the package without doing another brief review, but this one
will really take a lot less time.

@David: Once all the issues reported by Niels are fixed, I'd offer to do the
sponsoring. Please ping me via private mail, should I miss your email to the
