Hmmm... seems like Debian has "sponsors". That is a wannabe developer gets 
somebody to "look after him". He uploads the new guys work, and if after a 
while he gives the green light - the new guy gets his own account, and 
becomes a full-time developer. 
Though in debian most developers are just package maintainers and they don't 
have access to the really critical packages. And if the "sponsor" has any 
doubts about the new guys intentions - he can just discard him.
In other words - it would be nice to get ourselfs some gestapo type team (just 
like we have sec-team). Idea would be quite simple - check if the new guy 
didn't do anything funny in the past and if he did - make him explain.
