I just wanted to say I agree with everything Eric said, for +1 from me.

I am mentoring Pablo Salingo Salgado since January. I am watching his hard work since last September. He made many non trivial and useful contributions to Python.
I think that he understands well how Python is developed, is respectful, try to find answers alone before asking, and is eager to learn. In case of doubt, he ask others before doing something, like closing an issue. I trust that Pablo will respect opinions of others, like not merging a PR if someone disagree.
If Pablo is promoted as a core developer, I propose to continue to be his mentor for at least one month, and ask him before merging any PR.
I have had no negative (or any) experiences with Pablo and otherwise trust Victor's judgement and mentoring.
Regarding if Pablo has done "enough", ultimately folks get commit privileges at the point that they show they will be a benefit to Python development and we trust them enough to merge PRs. Any other criteria feels rather secondary, considering the variety of ways a core developer can contribute. We don't need to aim for exclusivity. (It's not like we have a limit on the number of people that can have commit privileges.) In this case we have a respected core developer (Victor) expressing his trust, suggesting that Python will benefit via Pablo, and offering to mentor him. Unless someone says they do not trust Pablo, I don't see any reason here to object.
That said, I agree that core developers in particular should be active on the issue tracker and reviewing PRs, and it makes sense to reward folks you show a commitment to helping there. I just don't think that is necessarily a major criteria for becoming a core developer, especially when someone like Victor vouches for the candidate. Sometimes I wonder if we scare off otherwise amazing folks because they think we expect a significant sacrifice of time or we inadvertently make them feel like they aren't good enough. It's easy for us to mess this up! :/
