As if a bot can actually review anything.

Look, it isn't hard to make sure things build and to run rpmlint.  We
already have other automated checks, like Kevin's source URL checks.
The problem is that the terribly named "ReviewOMatic" can't actually
automatically review anything; a human is still required.  rpmlint
output specifically is useless without piles of human interpretation.

Surely you don't want to be automatically mailbombed with the rpmlint
output from all of your packages.  That would only lead to bogus
changes just to shut up equally bogus complaints, or some random
syntax in comments within a specfile indicating what rpmlint
complaints are expected.  Does anyone actually want that?
