Today at the meeting [3 above] we discussed a little more about the procedure we
could do for new package and new branch.

Turns out, procedure #1 can basically be already started

Step 7 here could be automated for some parts (check the reviewer is a packager
for example).


This procedure could be revised a little bit when the bugzilla/fedmsg
integration goes live:

New procedure (1.5)
=================
1)  packager opens a review-request on bugzilla
2)  reviewer sets the fedora-review flag to ?
3)  reviewer does the review
4)  reviewer sets the fedora-review flag to +
5)  fedmsg broadcast automatically the flag change
6)  the new package request is automatically created from the information in the
    review (the hardest part being to find out which branch are of interest,
    maybe ask them upon review creation?)
6)  requests added to the scm admin queue
7)  cvsadmin checks the review (check reviewer is a packager)
8)  cvsadmin approves the creation of the package in pkgdb
9)  package creation is broadcasted on fedmsg
10) git adjusted automatically


So if everyone is ok with this, I think the best is to start with procedure #1
and move onto procedure #1.5 when bugzilla and fedmsg are integrated

Thoughts?
