As @deshipu noted, there’s also a FAQ that mentions “optimistic merging” and the question is: “How do you deal with rude contributors who are brilliant/highly skilled?”

It is better to embrace a bad contributor, and give them time to show their damaging behavior. By rapidly merging their (awful) pull requests, then quickly reverting or cleaning them up, it creates a historical record. “You did not use our guideline of clear problem statement with minimal solution. I’m going to revert your patch, sorry.”
