Slight problem that probably needs resolving...

In pull request https://github.com/macports/macports-ports/pull/12908 :
mascguy committed the request after only a few hours before waiting for
drkp to comment (drkp is the maintainer.) This isn't my main concern,
however; my main concern is that mascguy then deleted my comments in
which I noted that this wasn't how things are generally done, which
doesn't seem like reasonable behavior.
I appreciate mascguy's enthusiasm, and I'm also known to be sometimes
too eager to click "merge", but it's one thing to perhaps make an error
in committing something too quickly and another to delete comments
noting that someone made a mistake about policy.
Given that mascguy has been a steady and hard worker on the project I'd
just like everyone to come to a consensus that this isn't the sort of
thing we prefer and it would be better going forward if it didn't happen
again, and if we all followed the rules about merging maintained ports
etc. (I personally feel that "openmaintainer" rules should be looser,
but the way to deal with that is to discuss it and not to ignore the
rules and delete comments mentioning the rules.)
