I think the disagreement is about what should happen when the patch
submitter is not willing or able to fix the patch so it passes review.
In particular depending on whether the patch is supposed to address a
feature request/bug/crash bug/exploitable security issue (not that we
would always even agree on the categorization) resolving the issue IMHO
can be considered the maintainer's responsibility.
