This is not exactly what lucid-qa-fixing-bugs-with-patches (and is talking about
but it's quite close and we could make changes to it if necessary.

~ubuntu-reviewers would be the team that does "pre-patch review" and the
patch-needswork tag is used to indicate that a patch is not ready yet,
so we can have separate working lists and graphs and all the rest of it it.

Features of the process: It leaves the sponsoring queue untouched so
people who just care about that list are fine and still help to solve
the problem, we have different work lists, we invite others to help us
solve the problem.

Have a great day,
