Yes, but that's a different conversation.  Anand didn't say anything about
getting a reason.  The proposal was that packages be automatically
rejected if no ftp-master approves it within two weeks.

I don't understand how that helps anyone.  You still don't get any
explanation, and now there's not even a chance someone will find time to
look at it.
