Stuck in the issue queue? Help out!
I recently wanted to get a full project up on drupal.org, so I created a sandbox project and made an application to get it up. Somewhere in the way I lost the Drupal spirit and started to nag about how much time the process took.
It took some while, but suddenly I felt the spirit again - if I helped out in the issue queue for other applications myself, everybody will get the chance to have a quicker review, and we all together will have more modules to choose from.
There are almost always ways you could do something for the community, if you do, the community will grow and get better and better.
