Sounds like you're making too big a deal about the vote here. It's
basically just about making sure that everyone agrees about the
"decent contribution" part, so except for the few extra days of delay
in letting the vote run its course is pretty much the only extra
overhead I see here (yes, the Incubator adds a bit of extra
complexity, but that's temporary). Is the vote perceived as a bigger
barrier than that?

If not a vote, what (or who) would decide who gets commit access?
