Comment (by dd32):

 The review process currently is
  * Submit
  * Review
    * Reject
    * Approve
    * Work with the author to fix issues (resubmit)

 The last case there is currently done by keeping the plugin in the pending
 state, with the author emailing updated zip files to `plugins@` in
 response to the feedback they've received.

 My first thought was multiple statuses as part of a Workflow:
  * Submitted, awaiting review
  * Reviewed, waiting for developer feedback
  * Reviewed, waiting for admin feedback (If plugin reviewers need their
 reviews reviewed by an admin)
  * Hold - Reviewed, not waiting for Developer feedback, admin feedback,
 nor rejected/approved. Basically "This is being discussed".
  * Rejected
  * Approved

 `Reviewed, waiting for admin feedback` and `Hold` could be merged together
 to form a `Second Opinion` status - basically some way of saying "This has
 been looked at, and someone else needs to look at it".

 @Ipstenu Does the above sound right to you?

 Finally, If a plugin author has uploaded a ZIP originally, Ideally, plugin
 authors would update that ZIP which the reviewers are reviewing, so plugin
 owners probably need access to the plugin admin screen before approval.
