That is correct. The package proposal process allows for exactly that.
A package is considered as conditionally accepted if, by the
discussion deadline, the libraries mailing list reaches
consensus to accept it on condition that further minor changes
are made. The agreed changes must be made before the package is
included in any release. If these changes are made in time for
the normal package freeze dates (as set by the release team)
then the package is considered as accepted. If the changes
cannot be made in time for the immediate major release but are
made in time for the subsequent major release then the package
is considered as accepted for that subsequent major release and
does not need to be re-reviewed.
