Sometimes I can be a perfectionist.  In this case, I want my first package to be perfect, but I don't want to take an inordinate amout of time "perfecting it".  Sometimes I think I should just do my reasonable best and let others tell me where I missed it.

Just wanted to note that, though going through the guidelines attempting to catch every issue yourself would never hurt (there's a lot of great info in the guidelines)...  it is very common to over look things before submitting to review.  You could self-review yourself until you were blue in the face...  and have a second set of eyes find something just at a quick glance.  For your first package I wouldn't be as concerned with 'perfecting the package' before review as I would be concerned with simply learning the processes involved and 'getting your feet wet'.  

Good luck, and thanks for getting involved.
