Including new software in Fedora involves a submission process to assess how well the software is packaged according to the packaging guidelines. The packaging guidelines are exhaustive, and it's far too much for a reviewer to remember each and every step. Especially a new fedora package contributor. Many of the review steps are items for which a script or automated test could be performed by the packager (or package reviewer). It seems like it would be beneficial to provide a more consistent package review experience by automating many steps of the package review process, and possibly adjust the workflow to support packagers self-reviewing their packages using the script.
