I think that's not so much the issue, though it can be a
bit annoying for just typos etc.
A bit more annoying is when people send whole new patch series
just for a single typo fix (by typo here I mean things like
whitespace/comment spelling).
The issue is when you have to "beat" someone to review or else
it will never be applied.
I am certain a lot of the game codecs would be in a lot worse shape
if I had to find someone caring each time I wanted to get something done
(sending a patch and waiting a 3 - 7 days is not an issue).
