Right. If a maintainer wants all patches via email, that is how they work.

Even using a review tool in the first place is something that the maintainer 
asks people to do. If you don't want to you don't override the maintainer's 
decision and push directly, do you?

So the hypothetical situation is that there is a KDE project who's maintainer 
does not want the contribution of any other KDE developer.

Their loss, no?
