If it helps, when I was a TU, every request I created myself, I would usually not
be the one handling it. I always waited on another TU to handle it, because there's
a clear interest conflict there.

There are no rules preventing a TU from making a request and also being the one handling
said request, but that's how I did things. However, I would handle requests for clearly
problematic packages, like when I did a huge cleanup of manjaro packages.

Perhaps make a rule preventing TU's from handling their own requests?
