Just to add fuel to the fire w.r.t this discussion about process-improvements, lowering friction, etc. I'd like to point out (unintentionally tooting my own horn) a discussion I started up on this exact topic last week:
I have read most of the comments there and I haven't seen anyone suggest that privileges should be given earlier or more easily. (on the other hand, a clearer process perhaps wouldn't hurt)
Does your private feedback suggest otherwise?
I brought this up in the context of lowering the barrier to contribution; not as a value statement surrounding whether or not we should give out privileges sooner rather than later - most of the comments echo the sentiment of "it's hard or unapproachable to become part of this project".
I personally feel that if a person is willing to do the work, and someone vouches for them and is willing to be their mentor, there's no reason to wave our hands and say no.
