The review period is so that maintainers have a chance to review pull requests and mark any with an invalid tag for any that seem like they are made just to get +1 pull requests.

, what happens if the PR is not reviewed by the maintainer, or the PR is not marked with an invalid tag at all?
In that case, it counts towards Hacktoberfest contributions after the review period.
