As previously stated, that only works if you are a provenpackager.  The 
question is for those of us who are not, but are trying to help.

This seems to be particularly needed around mass rebuilds, which IMHO 
should be an "all-hands-on-deck" time.  For example, I've been going 
through the sizable F21FTBFS list[1][2], looking for arm-specific bugs 
and fixing what else I can along the way.  So far most of my ~100 
patches are just bitrotting in bugzilla, while branching is less than 
two weeks away.

As a newcomer to Fedora development, is there something else I should 
doing to get these patches reviewed and committed?
