Fedora: I just checked the latest statistics for Fedora Core merge review. Of the 1087 packages which must be reviewed, only 60 have already passed review (5.5%), 113 are under review to some degree (10.4%), of which 69 (6.3% of the total) await some action from the package owner and 44 (4.0% of the total) await some action from the reviewer. A total of 914 have not really started going under review (84.1%).

And that is just the bare statistics. The larger and harder packages (kernel, glibc, ...) are mostly in that 84%.

We seriously need more package reviewers. There have only been a few reviewers and I think some of them (like myself) are already burned out. We also need more collaboration from package owners (famously known as “The Red Hat Engineers”).

(Personally, I guess I will finish some of the reviews that I started and then maybe a few easy ones, but that’s all unless I suddenly find a lot of energy.)

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
