I think that waiting one week is way too long for a small revision to a
HOWTO.  You should have a password/signature system and put them onsite 
immediately.  The only docs that should be held for QC are first-time 
submissions or when a new maintainer first takes over a doc and 
makes significant changes.  Other docs should undergo QC when they are 
already posted at the LDP sites so that no delay is introduced.
The person doing the QC should hopefully understand the topic so they can 
spot mistakes.

It should be pointed out that "incoming" means to be posted to the LDP 
and mirror sites.  There should also be another 'incoming' section for
docs waiting for QC.
