Subject: [gentoo-dev] review required by herd? (new ebuild)

Due to bug https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=417117
it seems the situation on this topic is unclear.

I myself don't have a problem with getting my ebuilds reviewed if the
herd requires that before I commit them and have done this already a
few times.

More eyes/maintainers means higher quality IMO.

However I didn't get a definite answer if it's actually a REQUIREMENT
to get a review by a herd, especially when you do not plan to add that
herd to metadata.xml and plan to maintain the ebuild on your own.

This seems to be especially controversial regarding games in the main
tree (I myself always join #gentoo-games anyway and discuss the
ebuilds there).

What's the official policy, so everyone can be clear about this?
