No, I don't want to change anything.
The most important part of a formal review is the accept/reject vote. It is
often accompanied by comments that (a) act as a rationale and (b) suggest
changes that may cause the vote to change from 'reject' to 'accept'.
As a convenience, when the issues are minor, the library is not re-reviewed.
Instead, the review manager declares that the library is accepted subject to
issues X, Y, and Z. The implication being that these issues, if not
addressed, would cause the rejection of the library.
There is, of course, a fair bit of wiggle room allowed, but that's how
basically things are supposed to proceed, at least according to my
You can _suggest_ a change that is not strictly necessary for acceptance,
but you can't _demand_ it.
