I submitted my first paper to ICALP 2021 and just got the reviews back after receiving a rejection a couple of days ago. The reviews were overall positive with nearly all of the comments on presentation and typos.
Remarkably, two of the reviewers said -- "The ideas in this paper would make a nice chapter for a textbook". I have never seen this comment before and I am trying to understand if this is some sort of shade about the technical contribution or not. Does anyone have any input on what is this supposed to mean?
