It is possible to change the workflow, yes - this is something I was also

It can be done with this plugin:


Unfortunately, the plugin that's in Fedorahosted Trac does not work properly,
it gave me some Internal Errors. I filed a ticket for that:

When it is fixed, we can try to think about adjusting the workflow. Maybe we
can indeed add new states "submitted" and "onreview" to the workflow. But even
then I think we could use the "Patch Review by" field so that we know who is
reviewing, if anybody.
