Default Call for REVUers

MOTUs,
With only four weeks to go to Feature Freeze, it would be nice to
make a call on the packages on REVU before feature freeze. I'd like
to ask for more reviewers to take a look at a package or two, and
either point out some problems or advocate it for inclusion in Ubuntu.
It would be especially nice if the following packages could get some
attention before the next REVU day:

Received advocation but no upload: (5)
hardware-connected
smplayer-themes
gpp4
libserial
terminator

Did not receive a review in the last REVU Day: (7)
qdevelop
qtsmbstatus
qextserialport
jodviewer
awn-extras-applets
urbanterror
opensg

If you have half an hour, and could look one of these over to see
if it is suitable, please do so.

Thank you.

In addition, I would like to ask for a MOTU volunteer to specifically
collaborate on the TORQUE package, which is now in REVU. I have done
the grunt work, it's gone through a couple of cycles of reviewing by
persia and minghua, and I estimate that the package is 90% complete.
It is, however, a complicated packaging with 10 splitoff packages,
init & maintainer scripts and the works.

I imagine with such a complicated package, it will be difficult for
me alone as a non-MOTU to get it finished in time for Hardy. I will
be a lot of back and forth on REVU and waiting for someone to have
time to get acquainted with the package and review it.
For those who don't know, TORQUE is a batch queue client-server
system, especially designed to be the user front end of a computing
cluster. It would be really good to get this into Hardy, especially
since Mark Shuttleworth's vision for UL2008 includes:

"large-scale government deployments of Ubuntu on the desktop (there
have now been several) specialist deployments, for example high-
performance computing clusters, or vertical market solutions"

Torque is a piece of key software for a HPC cluster! So, if there's a
MOTU out there willing to put a bit of work in helping me get the
package done in time, it would be most welcome!

Cheers,

Morten (aka mok0)
