Just wondering, where does the data for that image come from?  I note that
there's no committer listed for Brisbane and yet here I am, apparently very
lonely in the Sunshine State. :)

I'm not sure I see a huge benefit to a trust relationship other than the
fact that it would encourage committers to meet in real life a little more
which improves community and often helps understanding between developers.
That in itself is a good thing.  The added security and reliability (trust)
is also a good thing I suppose.
