and assisting to build the rest of the community,
encouraging people, facilitation, advocacy ...

Yes. However, Matthew's case is nothing special. This is how
all of us became committers. We participated in the community
in a reliable manner, we helped out when/where we were able to,
we contributed stuff (perhaps code, docs, patches, help),
we gained respect, and then were invited. Any code/patch
contribution is only a part.

What really worries me is that we did not invite such people long
ago. We have been a slack community, in that we have not regularly
encouraged new committers. That will change - we should each of
us scour the email archives to find any more neglected contributors.
