Huh?  Searching for Davin Potts in my mail, I see a ~27 message long thread
from January 2015 about that.  Many of us were +1 to give him commit rights.

I personally assumed it had happened, but the only objections seemed to be
"lets see some patches first"... That part has happened:

Among the *other* things in my mail with Davin's name mentioned are several
streams of committed patches over the past year or so on multiprocessing
related issues (as expected), including recently.

berker.peksag, martin.panter and serhiy.storchaka have been the primary
committers of said Davin patches.

Let's get Davin a commit bit.
