I think that can be the developer. Remember:
A user who contributes to a project in the form of code or documentation 
becomes a developer.
So giving him karma to certain areas of the svn-tree would help reduce 
patches that are voted positiv. He could apply that by himself.

...why are we not using a auth-mechanism at apache? I mean every user of 
the mailing list can have an apache account (user and devs only does not 
have a person<AT> UNIX/mail account). This login could be used 
for wiki, jira, svn, ... The account information can be stored in LDAP, 
etc.. Helps as well the guys from infrastructure to easily look up user 
infos for changes in karma. Having doco in mind I reckon we would need 
such a mechanism anyway!
