Yeah, judging from recent posts by other review managers, that seems to
be the general consensus among those who know best. Oh well.

There was talk at one time about holding some sort of informal
mini-review for all of the SOC libraries at the end of the SOC cycle. As
well as giving the developers a chance to present their work, get some
valuable feedback, and perhaps generate interest for an eventual formal
submission, this might also provide a good opportunity for potential
managers to gain some experience and demonstrate their ability to manage
a review.
