I dug Jeremy out of his email black hole yesterday :)
and talked with him about this.  What we really need
is more people to be working on patches. :-) :-)

That aside for the moment, the answer to your question
is that he tries to send everyone a response, good or bad.
The ones that get accepted are more likely to have more 
in depth responses obvously.

I think we have a lot of loose ends that get overlooked
sometimes.  I'm working on cleaning up some of this 
hopefully over the next few weeks (or months).
