A process like this could easily be handled through package reviews
via bucktracker. Maybe there is need of adding a 'review request'

A review could then contain a 'quality check' of the spec file
(perhaps with Fedora Package Guidelines/rpmlint in mind), followed  by
a review of provided paches and a rebuild with 'acceptance test'.
