People usually screw up on accepting that their first
submission sucks. And they really get confused
when they are told what to fix and resubmit it, "why
doesn't the committer just do it?" That's where the
"learn" step comes in -- the committer is trying to
help you get a point your submissions DON'T suck
Find something you want to fix or improve...do it,
and enter the loop. :)

Respect Nick. If this is the official algorithm for helping the openbsd
project, I think it's near to perfect. I've been thinking of the same
question the OP asked; I don't think the value of having an expert
critique one's work can be over-valued.
P.S. Are there any urgent areas where the OpenBSD operating system
project is short-handed?
