[theme-reviewers] Asking users to review the theme

The point is: you should ask the reviewer in the ticket first. Not the mail
list or the forums: in the ticket.
Review tickets are meant to be a discussion between reviewer and developer,
and the process works much more smoothly when that happens. That's why we
ask developers to ask questions in the ticket before going elsewhere, and
why we ask reviewers to keep tickets open after leaving review comments.
The mail-list *is* a place for general discussion, and everyone is welcome
to use it for that. But if a question is directly related to a review
comment, the first place that discussion should take place is in the
ticket. If an issue or question can't be adequately addressed, then bring
an admin into the ticket.
Our goal is to ensure that Themes make it through the approval as
expediently as possible. That's why we ask that in-ticket issues be handled
in-ticket first. Once the Theme is approved, then by all means: open up
general discussion on the mail-list.
As for the forums: that's the worst-possible place to go for Theme
Review-related questions. The Theme Review Team members generally don't
monitor the forums (unless pinged).
