I wonder: is this the right question to ask?  There are contributors who
will never become core developers.  It's not a failure.  How many of us
actually hoped or expected to become a core developer when they started

The real issue is not that the step is hard to climb, but that it is
hard to get people interested in climbing that step (and continue being
active afterwards, even though the step has been climbed).  It is to get
people interested in the tasks and responsibilities (sometimes
annoyances) of being a core developer.

I don't think the latter works any better than the former :-)

> A contributor without the triage priviledge cannot triage bugs...

Yes, so it's more a question of giving them the tools necessary to do
what they want to do.  Not of giving them an award or a privilege :-)
