Let's be honest, though, practically speaking - in most cases - you
wouldn't need to be. All the examples of 'incorrect' negative karma that
Josh gave as the 'biggest' are ones that a generalist can usually
recognize quite well. And if it's one you can't confidently decide about
- get the maintainer in. It's better to be right than to be fast, isn't
