There's nothing stopping you from submitting reviews for any of the pending libraries right now. The library author may make all of the suggested changes before the review period begins, so you may wish to submit an amended review -- perhaps as a reply to your original review -- that indicates your satisfaction with the changes. In the worst case, when the official review is announced, or during the review period, you'll need to pass along a link to your early review so the review manager will know of it. (If there is no review manager now, presumably the author will keep track of your review anyway.)
