Right, so 33 is the packages for which a CVS admin request was
done as described here:
and 4 is RF_ACCEPT (accept means
approved ) so  have more package already approved
4 is for all packages which got approved in the history of
rpmfusion, not just those which have a pending CVS-admin
request for creating the pkg in CVS / bugzilla.

This work of review packages and approve it , can be used by anyone so
is not waste of time (IMHO).
I'm not saying it is =a waste of time, otherwise I would not
be participating in this myself :) What I'm saying is that
it would be good to unfreeze the CVS admin process, and actually
add new pkgs, getting a pkg through review and then not having it
show up the repo is just going to frustrate (new) contributors,
and is not going to motivate them to contribute more, were as
actually having the pkg show up in the repo will motivate
And the more organized we are, less work
we have. So can we clean a bit  (all review requests) ?
I think that going over this list, and asking for a status update
on all of them, maybe with a suggestion to do review swap would
be good to do. But IMHO we should first unfreeze then CVS-admin
process. Poking people to get to work on these only to have
things grind to a halt as soon as the review passes is not helpful.
