Linux vs FreeBSD, and other *NIXes

I saw something I missed earlier - its in this thread somewhere....  It
says that Linux has very little offical oversight - although I have never
contributed code to the kernel I have heard that is not the case.  I have
heard the maintainer will readly not accept code that isn't up to par.  It
seems to me that a project like this couldn't survive without a person at
the top.  So their are maintainers of sections (i.e net, scsi, ppc,
etc..) and then a maintainer of the entire project.  From what I can see
their is alot of oversight from a few people and many people are sending
them code.

Did I miss something somewhere?
