Why do you think the review system in place is extremely slow?

Currently there are a lot of libraries to review, but no review managers. That means that the user community don't want to spend a little bit of their time to manage a review.

In addition, the last review didn't had too much of reviewers (I'm also concerned by this point)
I'm the review manager of Boost.Task but the library is not ready for review, because now Boost.Task depends on Boost.Move, Boost.Fiber and Boost.Atomic (which is not yet on the review queue). Maybe the review withards could add this on the schedule page.

What do you propose to improve it?
