My advice is to spend more time on mentoring and less time to write
code yourself. In my experience, it's the fatest way to train a
contributor to become a core developer.

I almost succeeded to train someone up to a core dev, but the
contributor asked to not become a core right now for personal reasons.
I hope that it will happen soon ;-)
