Seeking package reviewing help by non-DDs



Hi all,

I suppose many of you might not (yet) be DDs and hence feel like all they can do
is package software and wait for some DD to come and respond to this RFS (in
fact there are many other options to contribute, but please read on for at least
one of them). Given that I've BCC'ed all the people whose packages I have
sponsored recently I know that this can be a fairly long and even somewhat
frustrating time span. Yet there is a way that *you* could help making this time
span a lot shorter:

There is a number of packages still seeking sponsorship, most of which are
packages that are entirely new to the archive and the quality of which has not
been checked so far. Most likely many of them will be of high quality, but at
them same time there will be hardly any package out there that could not be
improved in some or the other way.

Any one who has read this post thus far and has some time to share, DD or
not-yet-DD, would thus be cordially invited to take a look at one or several of
the RFS listed below. If the package is found to be in fantastic shape then
fine, please just go ahead and post that as well. If, however, you do find
anything you could see improved, please let the owner of the RFS and the list
know. 

So here's some of the RFS that, as far as I know, are open for quite a while
(more than one month, in this case) and haven't seen much of a response:

Personally, I'd highly appreciate if each of the people I'm BCC'ing, i.e., those
whose packages I sponsored recently, would pick up at least one of the above.
Don't worry about duplicate reviews, I'm sure everyone will have something to
add.

Best regards,
Michael
