With Raymond volunteering as mentor, I think an approach where changes are still reviewed, but it's Mariatta that does the final commit would work.
That would be pretty similar to the way things worked when I recommended Yury for commit privileges - at the start, the only thing that changed was that the final step in the review process changed from "wait until I find time to commit the change" to "looks good to me, go ahead and make the change".
Right. When I proposed Xiang Xhang, there was no 100% agreement, but I mentored him and put strong rules for the first weeks. He had to wait for at least one LGTM from another core dev and asks me for a final approval. IMHO it worked well, and Xiang is now autonomous. I now trust him to make the good choices ;-)
IMO, enabling people to take on responsibility is the best way to create well working teams.
