On the tracker, ordinary commit rights add the little symbol after your 
name and add your name to the drop down lists for Assigned and Nosy. 
(The latter, by the way, would be a reason to de-activate people 
inactive after several years.)

In the last year, she has submitted roughly 70 PRs, about half for IDLE, 
and perhaps 2/3 have been merged.  I still need to review her remaining 
IDLE PRs.  The last few I merged with little or no changed.  She has 
done some reviews, especially when asked, but obviously prefers writing.

On Github, the main effects of commits rights are addition to the list 
of possible reviewers, more weight to reviews (as far as github is 
concerned), and the possibility of pushing changes to both the PR branch 
and cpython.
