That depends on whether you just ramble on and write stuff or whether 
you communicate clearly, concisely, and accurately. Writing things for 
the appropriate audience in a way that tells them only what they want to 
know and doesn't waste their time with extra info is nontrivial, in the 
same way as writing a clean ebuild is. Anyone can write an ebuild, but I 
sure wouldn't add most people's first tries to the main tree.
