OK, but aside from the spamming, was his approach *actually wrong* as
in: his script was producing broken packages, irreparably. Talking
about "drive by submissions" and "junk" without giving the guy a
chance to fix things seems a bit uncharitable. You're too busy right
now? Fine, what harm would it have done to send him a polite note and
leave things for a week or two?

He's clearly enthusiastic, and with some pointers in the right
direction he might make a significant contribution to getting the
Fedora Haskell package landscape looking a lot more healthy than it
does right now. Let's hope he comes back ...
