Yes, that is how it is 'explained' in the documentation. But
explaining WHO decides does not really answer the question: "how do I
know if I'm ready to be considered, and, if not, how much of what does
it take to be eligible for consideration?"

To clarify: I, like many others (I imagine), have limited resources to
donate to the project. Instead of hacking around patching patches and
waiting for someone to get round to committing the code, I'd rather
spend the little time I have coding, testing and submitting the result
myself. I understand this is not a free for all and there is a process
to the whole contributor -> committer road. But, having said that, I
submit that some insight in the process and some transparency about
the actual requirements will go a long way to keep us patchers
patching along until "we get noticed by the PPMC"...

P.S. I would like everybody to know that as of this morning I broke my
personal record for days lived.
