It is possible to assist with the packages in the new queue if the
packages are available from somewhere else (normally the case), and
this location is listed in the wnpp request.

If this is the case, people wanting to help out can visit
<URL:http://qa.debian.org/~anibal/debian-NEW-summary.html> or
<URL:http://ftp-master.debian.org/new.html>, click on the bug number
to visit the WNPP request, and review the package in question for
packaging problems.  The review information can be sent to the
prospective maintainer and the WNPP request, and hopefully problems
will be fixed before the ftpmasters need to look at the package.
