I'd like to jump in and vouch for Chris. I've known him for many years
and while we haven't worked closely I expect he'd be a valuable
contributor. So +1 from me for giving Chris commit privileges for core
Python. (Chris, I assume you'll go through an apprentice phase where
you'll be letting another committer review your changes before you
commit them yourself. Rietveld at codereview.appspot.com should be
helpful for getting your code reviewed. (Just use upload.py instead of
the Create Issue form. :-)
