This is an excellent set of guidelines. The only drawback I see here is that the current VCS situation makes doing the review more tedious than it should be, especially for non-committers. Or maybe the Hg mirrors are truly up-to-date and working? Last I looked, they were lagging or unavailable.
If you only a review a patch (rather than say maintain and evolve it), there's no point in using hg rather than SVN.
Hmm, it feels exactly the other way around to me: working with the DVCS tools while reviewiing a patch allows me to be more productive (e.g., using 'bzr shelve' or the equivalent hg subcommand).
Making a local branch / clone for each issue also feels more natural than working in a read-only SVN checkout.
However, the mirrors are most of the time alive and up-to-date (sync period is around 5 minutes): http://code.python.org/hg
That was the URL I was trying to work with: it has been a couple of months since I last tried, however.
(perhaps you're thinking about http://hg.python.org/, which is an experimental conversion of the SVN repo, not really meant for daily use)
