Yes, because there is no checklist, or 'status'. That's just the way it is.
The PPMC are volunteers as well. And we don't keep track of every single
person that contributed to keep a 'score'. You get noticed by committing,
not by asking to become a committer and complaining about the process.

Sorry you feel that way but you're not the only contributor that has to go
through the same process. It's called a process for a reason and you just
have to go through it in order to get noticed.

You don't have to patch and submit and wait. You can go on GitHub, make a
fork, make changes, ask for feedback and once it's ready submit.

Patience is a virtue.
