New contributors can also review their own package and show what things
they found in their package like how they found they have correct upstream
source matching checksum, how they found license tag for their package,
what rpmlint output they found etc. This applies even for other packages
also waiting for review. But, here what Michael want to point out that
people waiting for their package review who are also waiting for
sponsorship should at least look into and provide
their review findings so that other people will come to know any issues in
their package and they can be updated/progressed further.

For a new contributor, if he submitted many packages then whichever package
first gets reviewed should get approved by sponsor member.
