I was saying that "contribute" always implies review before acceptance,
responding to the first half of your sentence. The second half
assumes it makes sense to discuss "review process" as a separate issue
from inclusion in core. It does not make sense, and I said so.

If you have a bone to pick with my comment about CF review being
lengthy, the points was that an independent tool can move more
quickly to accept submissions because:
1. there's less at stake
2. if it's written in a higher level language, enhancements
are easier.

Those don't hold when adding another check involves changes to the
`postgres` binary.
