Add-on review times at ATN

Hi friends of Thunderbird,

looking at the review queues at ATN, I can see waiting times of 193 days 
in the "regular" queue and 195 days in the "admin" queue. Note that 
admin reviews can only be done by a reviewer under an NDA 
(non-disclosure agreement) since the reviewer might get access to 
3rd-party source code. So Philipp was our only reviewer for a while. Has 
someone else been organised in the meantime? Volunteers?

The waiting time may be misleading since in some cases the reviewers 
asked questions that the add-on author hasn't replied to, so the review 
process is stalled. Even if delay of half a year may be an exception, 
there are still some add-ons which have waited one or two months. It 
doesn't look like a rosy situation over all. So what's the way forward here?
