It is, but reviewers are generally more motivated to look at your particular
package when they know they can discuss it with you real time. There's a
separate mailing list that gets all the uploads and comments.
I well recall the frustrations associated with being in the position you are
in and all I can say is hang in there. As Emmett has said, almost no REVU
activity has been done due to focus on getting Gutsy released, but that
should be starting to change.
Getting new packages into Ubuntu is one of the most challenging ways to get
involved in MOTU and packaging (it's how I did it too). You can also help
with fixing bugs in existing packages and merging updates from Debian. These
are generally easier to do and give you good experience. Additionally, some
reviewers are more inclined to review packages from people they know have
been more generally contributing to the community.
