Probably not.  But what I'd want is people to file specific bugs if they have 
ideas how to improve rpmlint by eliminating bogosity or to make its messages 
clearer or any other way, Bugzilla or upstream.  Not everything can be fixed, 
but that doesn't mean everything should be accepted either.  I suppose 
prolific Fedora package reviewers are The People who run into issues with it 
most often and are in the best position to help out by pointing those out - 
most certainly *much* better than current rpmlint developers.
