My original thinking was I'd set aside a "meeting time" to review specs
especially for doc issues and API designs. What I found quickly was that
the 400+ queue in one project alone was not only daunting but felt like I
wasn't going to make a dent as a single person, try as I may.

I did my best but would appreciate any change in process to help with
prioritization. I'm pretty sure it will help someone like me, looking at
cross-project queues of specs, to know what to review first, second, third,
and what to circle back on.
