What above is said is from sponsor side. I will suggest similar for
contributor side. Implement a script which search FE-NEEDSPONSOR package
review bugs where package has not already under review. This script will
check package submission date and then submit a comment every month till 3
Its one/two/three month since this package review is submitted and you are
in need of a sponsor. Have you started reviewing other packages reviews? if
yes please post the link to your reviews in the next comment.
Have you also run fedora-review on your package submissions? if yes and
found any issues in review.txt then try to fix them or ask on devel list or
#fedora-devel irc channel for help.
something like this. This will make sure contributor realize what he need
to do next after his submission. Thus, contributor will not loose interest
