Default package reviews: show only review reqs using a particluar language ?

Yes, this would be useful to know.

At the moment all OCaml related bugs have 'ocaml' in the Summary line,
and I have some searches which are basically freeform searches which
check for 'ocaml' in the Summary. It would be nice to have a better
more official way to handle this. Perhaps by depending on a "master"
bug (the same way that ExcludeArch / Blocker bugs are tracked).

Imho the summary is a good place for this, because then one can easily check
and filter for a particular language on the review mailinglist. Also it can
be easily seen on a bug search results page. Maybe it could be agreed on a
special way to mention it in case it is not already obvious, e.g. add the
language in parenthesis after the package name, e.g.

Review Request: foobarmatic (ruby) - some foo for bar

But language as a freeform random part of summary is not very clear either.
Review Request: foobarmatic c - some foo for C++ code documentation parsing
Review Request: foobarmatic written in c++ - makes ruby colored slippers
Review Request: foobarmatic perl - pythons on a plane

Seems like use of a whiteboard status flag or tracker bug would be much more
useful than trying to randomly search out those summary clues.

Keywords are not freeform, status whiteboard is. This is used for
various things by different parties. In the bug triage world, we use
it for a "we've been here" type tag. There's also a quasi-official
tag of "NeedsRetesting" which will attract the attention of QA-minded
folks to actually test a build for you. There's a few others which
other folks use. If you want to use it for something else, feel free!

I did not suggest a freeform random part but a defined part of the subject,
e.g. in parentheses.

Review Request: foobarmatic (c) - some foo for C++ code documentation parsing
Review Request: foobarmatic (c++) - makes ruby colored slippers
Review Request: foobarmatic (perl) - pythons on a plane

Nevertheless getting everyone to conform to something that arbitrary is more
difficult than tagging a tracker bug.
