So you think people who don't take the time to look at spec file before
submiting something will want to take the time to ask maintainer ?

It's a good idea to ask maintainer before making important or possibly
controversial changes, but for simple or obvious changes it's not really
needed. In that case, if for some reason a package should not be
submited, it's a good idea to add a comment in the spec file. It's also
a good idea to check the diff between current and pristine before
submiting a package.
