Review manager's responsibility is not to merely count the votes. The
person has to be a reasonable expert in the field, who should see pros
and cons of the library, weigh the points raised in the reviews and make
an informed decision (which might be against the votes, in principle).

And, obviously, the library author, despite any intended honesty, will
be biased in making such a decision.
