He has been contributing to Python via the tracker, c.l.p, python-dev and python-ideas for years and has recently requested commit privileges in order to work on IDLE. I think we should give them to him :)
Has he actually contributed code to Python in all this time?
That I've seen myself? No (NEWS doesn't show any specific patch attributions, but he is listed in ACKS. If I've missed anything, Terry will hopefully let me know).
My suggestion was more a matter of someone I trust to do a good job of reviewing and selecting for inclusion improvements to IDLE to provide KBK with more support than the existing comitters are able to provide. I realise it isn't the way we normally do things, but in this specific case I think it is worth a try.
