This is your personal opinion, not the policy exercised by the Emacs
project on recent times (see bzr, clang for two glaring examples).

Besides, "fostering good relations" on this case is a bit of a red
herring, since IIRC the current Magit maintainer is quite collaborative
with the Emacs core maintainers and, anyways, enriching Emacs itself is
more important than having good relations with a single individual.

Was that hurdle put by the Emacs maintainer or by the GNU governance?
