It's not difficult at all to get listed on the review schedule. The
difficult part is to find a review manager.
There are libraries that are staying in the queue for many months even
years and nothing happens while libraries that are entering the queue
that have a review manager are scheduled and reviewed within weeks.
I'm not saying this to bother you. It's just my experience from the
last 3 years.
The Review Schedule on the boost web-size says:
"Reviews are usually scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis"
Yet in fact it has been a last come first serve process most of the
time. And the crucial point is finding a review manager.
