Ehi, that's true, and that is a big thing we are missing.
Thanks a lot for reporting it!

I tried to address the problem:

 - I made an effort to greatly simplify DocteamGettingStarted
 - I added an entry to the FAQ about reviewing
 - I started DocteamStepByStepReviewing
Could you please check again if reviewing is now covered clearly enough,
and if maybe the information is there but it's too hidden?

Also, DocteamStepByStepReviewing could use some contribution from some
experienced reviewer, which unfortunately I am not.

I went through the list, closed a couple of bugs that needed closing and
accepted what I could accept: what is now marked NEW and assigned to me,
it's really in need of a helper.

However, I have no ideas on how to make it more clear, as looking at the
bug list makes it look like I'm taking care of everything and I don't
need any help.
