Just submit them for review and don't forget to make them depending on
FE-NEEDSPONSOR meta-bug
(https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Package_Review_Process#Contributor).

Until becoming packager, only sponsors can do the review. There is not so much
sponsors
(https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/group/members/packager/*/sponsor)
interested in Perl. Marcela mentioned Paul, I know about Iain (iarnell) and
Ralf (corsepiu).

Both expressions are equivalent. The one from guidelines is more general. We

Just link them by `Depends on' field properly in Bugzilla.

If they create dependency cycle, you need to weaken the explicit dependencies
in spec file temporarily to overcome this problem (by using %perl_bootstrap
condition).
