REVU - Cleanup of the "Needs Review" section

There's currently a quite big list of packages in the "Needs review"
section of REVU, many of which date back from several months ago.

I'm pondering on running a script to move all those which don't have
"jaunty" in debian/copyright to the "Needs work" section, leaving a
comment asking to change it to "jaunty", check the standards version
and some general recommendations (or perhaps just a link to a new wiki
page), so that we get ride of all those packages whose author isn't
coming back or which still need work anyway. I do understand that this
could be annoying for some users, though, so I'm asking here to hear
some more thoughts. Does anyone have strong objections to this?

On a related topic, I want to encourage y'all to open right now on your web browser and start
reviewing something :). Also note that the first REVU Day this cycle
is planned for next week, Friday 7 (I'll send a reminder for this
again one or two days before).
