Must not take much to boggle (spelled correctly) your mind. Well reviewed
packages tend to have same or more security problems, many supported by people
receiving thousands of dollars a month to do so. Unlike persons packaging for
Open Source, with the intention of building a positive and supportive
atmosphere. I take it you do not trust any of, or even the, entire Open Source

Such a mistake to do so. But that is what I would expect from people like you.
If you were to take version 2.4.2 of swish-e(1) on an x86_64 system, it would
fail. Patches in this package, unavailable elsewhere, correct that problem. I
call that improving the quality and security, not introducing additional
problems and security risks. But then I know a little about swish-e. Do you?

>since it appears to never even had a review, as Warren stated in
>comment #5.
That is what the time limit is all about. If a few reviewers do not have the
time to review all the packages, then let them in so users may sort them out,
and benefit from them.
