Adding to what steve just said, we need more people with the ability to:
- grant editbugs privileges in bugzilla
- manage product ownership in bugzilla
- validate ssh keys for git access
- manage git accounts and write access to repositories
- manage the release-manager
(i'm willing to help on all those 'behind the scenes' tasks..)

in the past weeks, we've had quite some new contributors popping in, and i
think that so far we failed in welcoming them *and* setting them up so that
they could actually contribute..
lots of perfectly valid and tested patches are pending in bugzilla for
someone with write access to git repos to just apply them.. and new
contributors fixing bugs might be saddened to see their work not


(oh, and since i'm also a 'distributor' via OpenBSD, i'm also doing some
QA/testing of dev releases, but that's only me, and some of the users i
know i can throw patches at..)
