This is a radical idea and would take work to get right, but here it
is for feedback:

Allow any developer to commit, but each developer is on their own
branch until they become a commiter. Then they are allowed to commit
to the committer branch. This branch would be a kind of mainline R&D
branch and committers could merge in worthy code from the other
developer branches as each saw fit.  The project committee would
maintain the main release branch and merge in items from the committer
branch, tagging all the files with a release number and packaging a
release about twice a month (as Cathedral/Bazaar says release early
and often).  This committee branch would always have only working code
so the head revisions for that branch would always bootstrap and work
as far as basic functionality goes.
