It is great to review code, yes, but it will not notify maintainers that
they have a patch for one of their ports, it adds more work for the
ports committers that will have to go and review the code, and maybe
notice it came from github, and then maybe notice that someone need to
notify the maintainer of the port in question, so that they can accept,
or not, the patch.

It is mostly going to end up having code review that are not handled by
anyone because they are not code review, they came from github, and the
submitter on github is not aware that there has been some review and
they need to update their code, or that they need to submit it to
bugzilla afterwards so that it gets reviewed by the maintainer.
