And I had missed the other thread too :)

Zeeshan, it's up to the patch submitter to keep track of the comments
raised during review, and to make sure all comments are addressed before
committing. When several people comment on a patch, you cannot push your
changes before reaching a consensus from everyone on the latest version of
your patch.

You generally have 2 ways of addressing a reviewer comment:
* either you agree that his suggested changes improve the code, and you
  make these changes
* either you think your way is better, in which case you explain why you
  did things this way and why you think this is better. Then, you need to
  wait and see if the reviewer got convinced to go your way, or if he has
  more objections/explanations. In which case we begin another iteration.

This process helps to get the code and the design of the library as good
and consistent as possible.

Hope that helps,
