We often refer to the review "queue", but that is using the vernacular rather than the computer science meaning of that word. It is not a FIFO. The order in which reviews are conducted is dependent upon many factors, but a library will not be scheduled for review without a review manager.

I just looked at and and don't see any mention of who finds the review manager, so it's understandable that you misunderstood. It is your responsibility to secure a review manager. One is not assigned. Once you've found someone, you post a message to the Review Wizards asking them to accept your review manager. If accepted, your review manager and you must then agree on some dates for your review -- you'll want to avoid conflicts with currently scheduled reviews -- and submit them to the Review Wizards who will then schedule your review.

I can't parse that statement.
