I'm afraid to be disagree with this decision.
By contribute to the RPM Fusion packaging side, contributors
approve to receive notifications about packages status (including new
package review) into RPM Fusion project .
If you won't receive a lot of mails then add filters or remove
yourself from the list.
Even if RPM Fusion isn't a huge project, do (preventing) thing at the
start is better than react on an overloaded or outage state.

the best way would be to the reporter to add to the CC the ML to notify
RPM Fusion contributors there's a review request running.
