I plan to put the review up on the Wiki in the same manner I've
already done. Snapshot_review/yyy-mm-dd

I plan to summarize the reviews in my blog and post to the mailing
list a similar review as well as a link to the Wiki'd review so that
people on device-owners can visit.

I also made the Snapshot_review page pretty "bare" so that anybody can
click "Edit" and then paste it into their own "series" if someone
wanted to (for instance) review ScaredyCat images in the same manner.

I'd happily do so but at the same time my interests are different than
other people's (I really couldn't care less about GPS, for instance)
so I need some prodding in the direction of what you all would like to
see tested as well. This means I'm also going to be in need of input
and it certainly will be added in there.

I posted that review today after using it for a day, so I was
partially rushed and didn't really get to reporting those. That said,
I plan to do a LOT of reporting on Bugzilla as well as tossing out
ideas here if they're more wishlist than bugs.
