6 Of course they have been criticized by Ciaran. In case you didn't know,
7 he does this for *every* maintainer-wanted ebuild. They are only
8 rejected as long as they have problems. If you fix them, they will be
9 accepted if some dev takes responsibility for them, or is recruited to
10 maintain them. It's really that simple Sounds like a case where you
11 can't stand to have anyone review your work.
