Not really. Just pick patches touching things you are a bit comfortable
with, give them some testing, and do some comments if needed. On the
other hand, if you think the patch is fine, simply reply with a
Reviewed-by tag.

Of course, reviewing simple package bumps or hash file additions is not
very useful, since I tend to apply such patches quickly: there is not
much potential trouble with such patches.

Yes, it is a pitty, but hopefully someone will pick up the task and
work on improving our QA tooling :)
