I propose to use the ITP bug for this. This would make the reviews public, and
could allow post-upload reviews. This way, there are less reviews when the
queue is short, and more reviews when the queue is long, which sounds like a
nice self-regulated system to my biologists ears.
In addition, it can help to have outsider reviews, which may be less biased
than team co-members. For instance after uploading a package to NEW, a
developer could review the two packges above his. This introduces randomness
and again some self-regulation, since the developers who use the system also
have to contribute to it.
To answer to Neil's earlier question, after such a system is established and is
successful, it can either be used to facilitate the recruitment of new members
of the ‘FTP assitant’ team, or as a seed to replace the existing system.
Have a nice day,
