On the page,, under the
REVIEW WIZARD heading, it says,

The Review Wizard coordinates the formal review schedule:

 - Maintains a list of review manager volunteers, in the form of a
queue, so that
   volunteers who least recently managed reviews become the prime candidates for
   upcoming reviews.
 - When a formal review is requested for a library:
   - Assign a review manager and suggests a schedule, after checking
(via private
     email) availability of the volunteers at the top of review manager queue.
   - Finalize the schedule, once the review manager verifies the
library is actually
     ready for review.
   - Resolve schedule slips or other issues with review managers and submitters.

I know that volunteer review managers put themselves forward for
certain libraries. Failing that I was expecting a review manager to be
assigned, unless of course the volunteer review manager list is empty.
