That's what I was thinking too.  That's why I asked if there were
patches ready from a couple of people, so that we can review them for
quality and such before or during a committership vote.

A committer's gotta nominate a contributor, the PMC has to approve.
It's pretty simple in that technical regard.  Different people have
different personal criteria for voting on a new committer.
Personally, for a project approaching dormancy, my criteria are lower
than usual: a few good patches, some demonstrated energy on the
mailing lists, and a good attritude.

If you've got someone you want to nominate, g'ahead.
