    * Download upstream source
    * Check md5sums
    * Build and install package in mock.
    * Run rpmlint.
    * Generate a review template, which becomes the starting
      point for the review work.

The tool is composed of a plugins, one for each supported language.
As of today, there is plugins for C/C++, Ruby, java, R, perl and
python.  There is also support for external tests that can be written
in a simple way in bash.
