You think a newbie packager is just going to dive in and accidentally screw up 
gcc and glibc without, say, contacting the owner(s) first? I can see two 
possible cases for your sarcasm here:

  1) newbie tries to fix something without consulting owners at all
  2) newbie (actually, someone malevolant trying to break Fedora because they 
hate Robert Scheck) breaks package intentionally

In either case, the package owner gets an email summarizing changes to CVS, 
and can revert the CVS change. If the newbie was malevolant and/or the problem 
persists, they can be kicked out of Fedora. If not, they learned their lesson 
(similar to Wikipedia's "please go play in the sandbox, kid").
