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.
