Thanks David for clarifying this. We know any onlooker with incomplete
information could fall into the same
situation especially when we reject a contribution.

We unfortunately had a less than ideal situation here with code dumping in
the past.  As a result we must now "manage"
a specific committer's activities.  We trust all of our folks at the start
since we vote them in and see it as a chore to have
to manage anything at all.  We, the PMC, feel very good vibes from people
like yourself who have the right intentions.

I personally feel bad that I did not have the time to help when you needed
it with your patches: which all btw met our
criteria.  I think we've rectified that and can continue forward.

Thanks,
Alex
