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.
