Great news!

I'm the manager of the reviewers group, http://groups.drupal.org/reviewers.
It's not that active but I'm sure that some promotion wouldn't hurt ;)
Anyone who wants to step in and help organize the group is certainly
welcome. Drop me a mail linking to your d.o or g.d.o account and I'll make
you a manager.
