For me, its something of a personal investment to take the time to get
to know a new library, one that isn't always easy.
I think it would help if, as part of the beginning of the review
process, there was a document that offered a quick tour of everything
I'd need to know to review the library, interfaces to source code to
rationale. The blurb that comes in the review notice isn't enough, and
the tutorials in the documentation aren't really the same information
I'd like to see as a reviewer.
